Open and Honest Tameside
Our patient stories are important to us and we believe that feedback- both positive and negative- is essential to improving the care received by the patients and their families. Here are two patient stories. One story demonstrates where we communicated well and provided timely and compassionate, care and another where a previous negative experience influenced a point of view, but demonstrates our commitment to improvement.
