"Exceptional nurses on the women's health ward"

About: Tameside General Hospital / Gynaecology

(as the patient),

I was admitted to the women's health ward from A&E for 3 days.

Never been in Tameside before, however I found the service from the nurses on the women's health ward exceptional. These nurses work long shifts & still greet you with a smile & are happy to help with any request you have.

Cleanliness of hospital - more so A&E than wards - not so great & could do with improving somewhat as blood was visible on bins & gowns left in toilets.

Overall Tameside could do with some improvements, however I can't fault the nurses service on women's ward. Extremely happy with that.

Response from John Goodenough, Director of Nursing, Tameside Hospital NHS Foundation Trust

Thank you for taking the time to provide your feedback. I am sorry that the A&E department was not as we aspire to. I will ensure this is fed back to the relevant teams. On a positive note, it was pleasing to read your comments about the nurses on the Women's Ward.

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. Want to know more about what’s involved? Please contact John Goodenough, Director of Nursing at
