Tameside Hospital NHS Foundation Trust is one of 14 hospital trusts across Englandwhich is being visited as part of a national review, led by Sir Bruce Keogh, medical director of NHS England.

As part of this review, to ensure the views of patient and the wider community are heard, an independent panel will be holding a listening surgery at Dukinfield Town Hall on Thursday 23 May, 6pm until 8pm.

People will have a chance to share and discuss their experience with the review panel, fellow patients and other members of the community.

Tameside Hospital Chief Executive Christine Green said: “We very much welcome this visit by the review team and would encourage people to attend the listening event so that their views about the hospital can be heard.

“It is really important that the review team hears from as many people as possible about their experiences atTamesideHospitalso they can get a clear and comprehensive picture of this hospital.”

Anyone who is unable to attend, can give their views separately to the review team and can do this in a number of ways:

“We very much look forward to receiving the review team into the hospital and are confident the team will see how committed we are to working with our partner organisations to provide high quality care to all our patients,” said Mrs Green.

Outcomes from the review are not expected until late summer and will be published by NHS England.
