Tameside's A&E Service
17 February 2017

To reiterate the Greater Manchester position on the region’s A&E departments, including ours, following recent media coverage in the Independent and HSJ.

There is no 'Greater Manchester service reconfiguration' other than Healthier Together, which concluded decision making in the summer of 2015 and is now being implemented.

Under these changes it was confirmed that:

Greater Manchester will invest in bringing all of its A&Es up to a new, higher, quality standard; in fact since the decision was made in summer 2015 improvements have already started, including recruitment of more emergency department staff.
