This story has been posted by Healthwatch Tameside on behalf of a member of the public who asked not to have their name published. They said...
As a diabetic, they were asked whether they wanted to transfer care from Tameside Hospital to their GP. Transferred to Grosvenor Medical Practice.
Much better service than at the hospital:
• Don’t have as long to wait (could be 2 hour wait at hospital)
• Nurses at the GP surgery are very efficient – have an appointment on Monday to do bloods & the following Monday the nurse has all the results and follows up any issues.
• The GP surgery is more convenient
• Nurses get to know you & build up a relationship
All in all much better than Tameside Hospital for this person.
