As of 7 February 2017, Tameside & Glossop Integrated Care Foundation Trust has been rated as 'Good' the Care Quality Commission, who commended us on being 'well-led', 'responsive' and caring'.
In the 2016/17 Staff Survey, the Trust was in the top 20% of Trusts for staff stating they felt motivated at work, able to suggest improvements and that they would recommend the Trust as a place to work or be treated.
There has never been a more exciting time to join us. Tameside and Glossop Integrated Care NHS Foundation Trust (T & G IC) will provide the foundation for one of the first ICOs in England, bringing together a wide range of health and social care services for the benefit of local people. The ICO will manage a person's entire care in the future, by linking up hospital services with community care and mental health services as well as working closely with GPs.
We expect that, to fully transform these services, will take between three and five years. This is a unique opportunity for Tameside and Glossop to be at the forefront of developing more joined-up integrated care; and we are absolutely committed to getting it right. To get it right, we need the right, highly skilled patient focused workforce throughout the whole process.
Our values and behaviours are at the heart of everything we do, and the Trust's values and behaviours drive a culture of openness and candour, where staff are listened to and where patients come first.
The Trust is nestled at the foot of the Pennines, eight miles to the east of Manchester and serves a population concentrated in the largely industrialised areas of the eight townships of Tameside, which comprise Tameside Metropolitan Borough Council. This is in addition to Glossop, a market town within the Borough of High Peak in Derbyshire. The Trust is located within a close proximity to the M60 motorway network and is also closely located to the towns of Barnsley, Huddersfield and the city Leeds
