A new emergency department has opened at a Greater Manchester hospital following a major refurbishment.

Tameside Hospital A&E underwent a £3m revamp to create "a larger, modernised, spacious" department.

Nurse manager Karan Shingler said: "It is a marvellous new facility which the people of Tameside should be proud of."

The department, expected to treat over 75,500 patients a year, now has a children's A&E and separate areas for minor and major accidents.

The building now has 32 larger treatment areas and an extended resuscitation area.

Ms Shingler added: "This has been a very complex and challenging project and we are delighted with the final results."
