Our vision is to improve health outcomes for our population and influence the wider determinants of health, through collaboration with the people of Tameside and Glossop and our health and care partners. You can read the Trust's full strategy: From Patient Care to Population Health by clicking the link on the right. 

Our values and behaviours underpin everything we do. From our recruitment policy to the way we communicate with colleagues and patients, our values and behaviours should always be at the centre. Our values and behaviours aren't just a collection of words, they have meaning - we believe in them and we expect our team to demonstrate them every day. 

Our values reflect everything we are. Here you can find out more information about what makes us tick and how we embody our values and behaviours in everything we do. 

A visit to our Trust will tell you that we work by a defined set of values and behaviours. These values and behaviours define the organisation that we are, and aspire to be. It is very important that all of our staff sign up to our values and behaviours when they join the Trust, in fact we specifically look for candidates that can demonstrate these values and behaviours to be part of our team.

At Tameside and Glossop IC NHS FT, we have a motto that ‘Everybody Matters’. By living our values and behaviours throughout the organisation, we are able to demonstrate that everybody really does matter.

By demonstrating all of these values and behaviours, individually, and as an organisation, we’re able to confidently say that Everybody Matters.
