About: Tameside General Hospital / Maternity care

(as the patient),

Was rushed to Tameside Hospital by Ambulance as my placenta ruptured at home, ambulance arrived at my house within 4 mins, and I was in theatre having an emergency section within 45 mins.

All the staff were fantastic and acted quick to me and my daughter when she was born. I have no negative comments about the treatment and care we both received.

And I feel the maternity ward should have had some of the funding to update the decor and facilities of the ward as the nurses on that ward were fantastic.

Would you like to help the hospital to improve its services further? We are currently looking for patients and carers to become involved in a development called “Patient Stories”. We want to know more about our services from the point of view of those who received them – what was good, bad, what could be improved, what should be changed.
