In Tameside and Glossop, we provide a range of health improvementmental health and specialist services that aim to keep you healthy from the day you are born through to the end of your life. 

We work in partnership with a range of other organisations to deliver many of our services to make sure your care is joined up. For example, our mental health practitioners work closely with Tameside police as part of the Street Triage service, so that officers who come into contact with anyone with mental health needs can seek professional health advice to ensure the individual receives the right level of support. This is in line with our commitment to providing integrated services that ensure you can benefit from ‘whole person care’.
