"Staff were exceptional"

About: Tameside General Hospital / Dermatology

(as the patient),

I recently completed treatment at the Dermatology/Phototherapy dept and I cannot name the best nurse as there was 3 members of staff that were exceptional. Julie, Lorraine and Lisa who were polite, kind and very professional and not only did they make me feel calm and reassured but they did so to others who were waiting for treatment. This I observed whilst in the waiting area to be called. Please acknowledge the staff as everyone is so busy thanking the staff on the wards that they forget about the clinic staff.
