"My care during a recent admission for surgery"

About: Tameside General Hospital / Trauma and orthopaedics

(as the patient),

I was admitted recently for a total knee replacement procedure and have nothing but praise and gratitude to the surgical and elective unit staff whilst in hospital.

Where all the adverse press about the hospital comes from amazes me as I cannot find fault in any aspect of the hospital during my stay. I would certainly recommend Tameside to anyone thinking about having medical treatment
