"High standard of care in the areas that matter"

About: Tameside General Hospital

Anything else?

The level of care that I have received from the Consultant in the department has always been excellent. He takes the time to discuss issues and talk through the options, he always leaves me feeling like a human being and not just an example of a health condition.

The specialist diabetic nurse is incredibly helpful, understands how it feels to be diabetic and gives really sound advice.

The general nursing staff in the department vary, some are lovely, but others can be a little off hand, you are just yet another patient not a person sometimes.
