This story has been posted by Healthwatch Tameside on behalf of a member of the public who asked not to have their name published. They said…

This person had some pain in their back for a few weeks but thought it was a trapped nerve. Came to hospital to find it was an abscess on spine. Had great treatment, been in hospital for 5 weeks. Can't fault it. Put weight on as food is good.
