About: Tameside General Hospital / General surgery

(as a staff member posting for a patient/service user),

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 lady had an operation for Carpel Tunnel Syndrome last week. She opted for a local anaesthetic because she didn’t want to stay in for 6 hours. She had great treatment, all the staff treated her well.

She felt the injections but didn’t feel a thing after that. Now starting to be able to use her fingers again!
