My wife has had an operation on her finger. She presented at Tameside Hospital on New Year’s Eve and she was treated very quickly. She was then found a bed and was operated on on New Year’s Day.

She came home on the following day. Then we have had 10 weeks of checks & dressing. In all that time she has had the best of care by every department she went through.
