"My stay in the Women's Health Unit "

About: Tameside General Hospital / Gynaecology

(as the patient),

I feel I have to write to thank all the doctors and staff on the WHU at Tameside Hospital, my Consultant Dr Hanna, the Anaesthetist Dr Kitson, the recovery nurse Zoe and all the staff on the unit.

At every stage of my procedure they were friendly, reassuring, and very professional. The nursing staff on the unit were very busy, yet no questions were too small or silly.

The ward was constantly being cleaned and beds were made and remade with clean sheets every day, the domestic was chatty and clearly enjoyed her work. Overall the atmosphere of ward was cheerful and friendly yet very professional.

I felt I was in very safe hands. I would not hesitate to recommend these staff and this service. Tameside is very lucky to have them.
