"We cannot thank you enough"

About: Tameside General Hospital

We would like to express our gratitude for the care we received at both a&e and under paeditrics at tameside. We have previously only experienced maternity services, but my son recently required an admission via a&e to paediatrics. The care he received was faultless. The a&e staff from the receptionist at the front desk to the doctors and nurses in the cubicle were polite and professional. We especially wish to thank the a&e triage nurse, the lovely nurse that took his blood test and the doctor. The paediatric team were prompt and reassuring. Thank you to one of the doctors, the sister and the registrar, and also another doctor and the community nursing team. You are all wonderful and a credit to the nhs.

I shall ensure that the staff get to see your lovely comments and we all hope that your son is recovering well.
