Response from Peter Denton, Healthwatch Manager, Healthwatch Tameside

Thank you for sharing your experience. It is good to hear that things went well for you.

Healthwatch is independent of the NHS and we have two main roles. One is to develop and provide an information signposting service to help people to choose the right care for them. The other is to gather and analyse patient experiences so we can identify and influence changes in services when they are needed.

Your story might be useful to someone trying to decide which hospital to choose for their cardiology appointments.
