In September, our regulator, Monitor, made an announcement that they would be looking for an organisation to help us, and our commissioners, explore how we deliver our long term strategy for a sustainable health and social care service in the local area. Monitor have today announced that PwC have been awarded this contract.
This announcement represents another milestone into exploring options around how we provide the very best care for the population of Tameside and Glossop.
Health and social care delivered in its current form, not just in Tameside, but across England, is unsustainable. We are very pleased to be leading the way, along with our commissioners and our local authority, in developing a new type of hospital for the benefit of our local community.
