"mixed experience at Tameside maternity"

About: Tameside General Hospital / Maternity care

(as the patient),

*depending on midwife – I found them either caring or not. Couldn't understand my feelings or needs. Should be treated as an individual not a number.

* Car park expensive – would be good if you could by an all day ticket

*Good they provided some formula

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

Thank you for taking the time to post your comments about Tameside Hospital on the Patient Opinion website.

I am sorry that you describe mixed views of the midwife caring for you. I will ensure that the Head of Midwifery is immediately made aware.

Additionally, I am sorry that you found the car park expensive. The rates are nationally benchmarked and Tameside Hospital is comparative to other Trusts, I will pass on your recommendation for an all day ticket to the Estate and Facilities department.

John Goodenough

Director of Nursing

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
