"Excellent unit, great level of care"

About: Tameside General Hospital

I've just been discharged after an overnight stay at the women's health unit for an operation on a bartholins cyst. The staff were amazing, my two nurses were warm, friendly and always on hand if I needed anything, even though the ward was extremely busy. The consultant and anaesthetist were fab and kept me informed at every step, explaining what they were doing and why. I was slightly nervous about the op as I'm 26 weeks pregnant but they took great care to ensure the safety of my baby. I haven't a clue why Tameside has such a bad rep. This was my second stay there and both times have been excellent in terms of the level of care and treatment that I've received.
