Commenting on the latest CQC report into Tameside General Hospital, local Members of Parliament Andrew Gwynne, Jonathan Reynolds and David Heyes said;
“Today’s report by the CQC shows that progress has been made, particularly in vital areas such as accident and emergency and mortality rates, which is reassuring. But there are clearly still significant problems that need to be addressed.
“Without doubt staff at the hospital have worked hard over the past 12 months to make the changes recognised in this report. And crucially we believe the new management team is better placed to be able to deliver the improvements that remain necessary.
“However, as local Members of Parliament, we believe further improvements are crucial - and we will continue to work with management, patients and staff until we have a hospital that Tameside can be proud of.”
