"Compliments to all staff involved"

About: Tameside General Hospital / Dermatology

(as the patient),

What a pleasure to be able to report on different departments and compliment all staff involved. On Tuesday, I had an appointment in Dermotology. I arrived early. Within 5 minutes I had been weighed and measured.. I then had a thorough examination and discussion of my condition with Dr, Shepherd who recommended a completely new course of treatment to the one prescribed by my GP which has not proved effective.

I was then sent for blood tests and chest X ray. The whole experience was completed in one hour and in each department I was treated by pleasant and competent staff throughout. Well done Tameside. & NHS.

Thank you for these lovely comments, these are very much appreciated. I will ensure these are passed to Dr Shepherd and her team in the dermatology department.
