About: Tameside General Hospital

Anything else?

I attended a clinic and would like to compliment the consultant on his manner, care and ability to discuss my problems with me. I was impressed that he came out to greet each patient personally which instantly relieves worries you may have. i found him pleasant, well informed and he had a very caring manner. He communicated well and listened carefully . I think he deserves credit and praise for his welcoming approach and the interest he is able to show his patients. thank you very much to all the staff I met - you were a credit to the NHS and answered questions, helped me use your new self check in, and generally have a successful visit which ran smoothly - I was impressed ! I prefer to make my own judgements and not be swayed by adverse publicity - lots of people do - keep up the good work and don't loose heart - some of us appreciate the work you do ! remember people are quick to complain and slow to praise!
