Our Services

Our range of services include general and specialist medicine, general and specialist surgery and full Consultant led obstetric and paediatric hospital services for women, children and babies.

Safer Staffing

High quality, compassionate care is about people, not institutions. In every ward and department nursing, midwifery and care staff work to provide care and compassion to people when they need it.

At Tameside Hospital we aim to ensure the right people, with the right skills, are in the right place at the right time.

Our Improvement Journey

Compliance with the NHS Improvement Provider Licence

As part of the regulatory system for NHS Providers, the Board  must annually consider its compliance with the conditions set out in the Provider Licence. At its meeting on 23rd May 2018, the Board agreed the following statement in respect of Condition G6 related to compliance-


Following a review for the purpose of paragraph 2(b) of licence condition G6, the Directors of the Licensee are satisfied that, in the Financial Year most recently ended, the Licensee took all such precautions as were necessary in order to comply with the conditions of the licence, any requirements imposed on it under the NHS Acts and have had regard to the NHS Constitution.

Not fully compliant


The Trust cannot declare compliance under this condition as it has continuing Enforcement Undertakings to NHS Improvement (Monitor), which are predicated on the Trust not being fully compliant with the conditions of the Licence.
