Welcome to Tameside Hospital
Tameside Hospital serves a population of 250,000 across Tameside and Glossop.
As a busy District General Hospital we provide a range of high quality elective, emergency and specialist services for adults and children.
The Trust's Mission statement is to gain and retain the status of Hospital of Choice for our local community.
Dignity, Respect, Trust and Partnership are the themes which underpin our mission and values.
Tameside and Glossop Acute Services NHS Trust became an NHS Foundation Trust in 2008, and is now known as Tameside Hospital NHS Foundation Trust. The hospital is still known as Tameside General Hospital.
Foundation Trusts are still part of the NHS and subject to rigorous inspections, but patients, staff and local residents have a greater say.
Our membership of around 15,840 public members and 2,394 staff members is the driving force behind out Foundation Trust.
