"We are making significant improvements".
That's the message from Karen James, Interim Chief Executive, Tameside General Hospital in response to a critical report by CQC inspectors who found the trust was still failing to meet 8 out of 11 key national standards.
The Trust says it has already started recruiting 60 nurses and compassion is at the heart of what they do.
Plans for a new 335 million pound Royal Liverpool University Hospital have been given the final seal of approval.
Construction work will start early next year on the building which will have 18 theatres, 23 wards and 646 single bedrooms.
