"Emegancy case"

About: Tameside General Hospital

I was brought into the hospital via ambulance and found the paramedics to be outstanding and comforting. I arrived to be seen straight away and has bllods taken swiftly. I was however then wheeled out into the corridor for 5mins max as the hospiyal was extremeley busy on they day. I was then taken to resus where again i was treated swiftly and my condition was stableized. With in 30 mins they were sure of the cause. Once a bed was free i was transferred to the.Atu ward i think it was called i have been here since thursday afternoon. I am diabetic type 1 and i have been treated absolutly brilliant the food is good which is a testiment as i am a very fusy eater. I would like to thank every member of staff that has helped me over the last couple of days and are continuing to help me.

From my experience at the hospital i beleive the staff deserve credit for the work they are doing.

Thanks to the staff in resus, the Atu ward and the paramedics
