"Disheartening"

About: Tameside General Hospital

I am disappointed with this hospital and the poor manner in which administrative bungles caused torment and heartache for my grieving family. When my father in law passed in this place, hospital staff bungled their way through dealing with the certificate and it caused further frustration and heartache for my grieving mother in law. She patiently dealt With the matter, but staff did not see how much their incompetence hurt my family more than was necessary. I feel a letter of apology and a bunch of flowers is the least you could do.

Thank you for your comments this is clearly not the standard of care we expect any of our relatives to receive at this difficult time.

Thank you again. John Goodenough Director of Nursing ‘’Would you like to help the hospital to improve its services further? We are currently looking for patients and carers to become involved in a development called “Patient Stories”.
