About the trust

Tameside and Glossop Integrated Care NHS Foundation Trust was established by founders Samuel Oldham and Henry Darnton in 1861. In 1976, the hospital's name was changed to Tameside General Hospital. Over the subsequent decades, new structures were constructed to improve the quality of care for the residents of Tameside and Glossop. 

The hospital became a Foundation Trust in 2008. Today, the Trust is not only a standard hospital that provides acute services within the hospital but also delivers an extensive array of community services. The community clinics under the Trust are:
