About the Trust

Tameside Hospital NHS Foundation Trust is located at the Tameside General Hospital in Ashton-Under-Lyne. The organisation was formally authorised as a Foundation Trust on 1 February 2008.  The Trust was formerly known as "Tameside & Glossop Acute Services NHS Trust".

Situated at the foot of the Pennines, eight miles to the east of Manchester the Trust services a population of over 250,000. The population is concentrated in the largely industrialised areas of the eight townships of Tameside, which comprises Tameside Metropolitan Borough Council.

However, Glossop, with its population of approximately 28,000 is part of Derbyshire High Peak Borough Council, which provides the challenges of a more rural community.
