The spring 2021 edition of Trust magazine, our magazine for members, is out now.

This edition contains a feature on our health visitors and their vital work shaping little people along with some top tips for readers who have children under five years of age. Also, if you are thinking of a change in career and looking for something rewarding, where you can make a real difference, there is some advice on how to get into health visiting.

The magazine has updates on how we are looking after the health and wellbeing of our staff with the Trust Health and Wellbeing Strategy and recognising the importance of equality, diversity and inclusion in order to build a sustainable workforce. There are also updates on a new cancer service and changes to accessing emergency care at the Trust.

We have caught up with our teams who are leading on the recovery against COVID-19. The COVID-19 vaccination programme across Tameside and Glossop continues to progress at pace with the combined effort of the Primary Care Networks and the Trust hub.

The pandemic has meant that our services have had to change and innovate to keep up with the changing needs of our patients. You can find out more about how our staff are supporting patients with Long COVID on pages 6 and 7.

Finally, the magazine has some top tips to deal with stress and burnout. We know that many people around the country are experiencing high levels of stress after such a challenging year.
