"Still waiting for gastro appointment"

About: Tameside General Hospital / Gastroenterology

(as the patient),

I was told I would be seen again in 2 months time, but 5 months on still no appointment.

I rang gastro clinic to see why. They said doctor has left, so will have to wait for someone to see me. Weight loss, bad tummy cramps.

I did think Tameside was good till now.

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.
