MP encourages residents to attend Tameside Hospital listening event

 Stalybridge and Hyde MP Jonathan Reynolds is encouraging residents to attend a listening event at Dukinfield Town Hall on 23rd May 2013.

Jonathan Reynolds MP is asking local residents to submit their views about care they have received at Tameside Hospital.

The Keogh Mortality Review, led by Prof. Sir Bruce Keogh, focuses on the quality of care and treatment at 14 hospitals across England, of which Tameside Hospital is one.

Commenting on the review, Mr Reynolds said “Residents across Tameside deserve access to hospital services that they can trust, which is why I welcome the Keogh Mortality Review that was announced in February earlier this year.

Mr Reynolds continued, “For this reason, I would actively encourage people to participate in the review and to share with Prof. Keogh their experience of the care they have received, good or bad.”
