About: Tameside General Hospital Tameside General Hospital Ashton Under Lyne OL6 9RW
My labour was long and traumatic as I ended up with an emergency section. Labour staff were very helpful. It was when i got to the recovery ward 27 things started going downhill. Staff seemed very dissatisfied with their jobs,they were very unhelpful, i felti was not listened to. Staff were patronising making snearing remarks to other patients. Every time i tried feeding my daughter they would pick on every little things they felt i was doing wrong. I felt judged and did not have any support from staff whatsoever. Upon leaving my husband asked the midwife if we had put the car seat on correctly and the reply we got was 'well how would I know how it goes'. It was a very unnecessary way to reply. I would never dream of recommending this hospital to anyone.
