There has never been a more exciting time to join us. Tameside and Glossop Integrated Care NHS Foundation Trust (T&G IC) will provide the foundation for one of the first ICOs in England, bringing together a wide range of health and social care services for the benefit of local people. The ICO will manage a person’s entire care in the future, by linking up hospital services with community care and mental health services as well as working closely with GPs.
We expect that, to fully transform these services, will take between three and five years. This is a unique opportunity for Tameside and Glossop to be at the forefront of developing more joined-up integrated care; and we are absolutely committed to getting it right. To get it right, we need the right, highly skilled patient focused workforce throughout the whole process.
Our values and behaviours are at the heart of everything we do, and the Trust’s values and behaviours drive a culture of openness and candour, where staff are listened to and where patients come first.
PLEASE NOTE: IF YOU HAVE NOT HEARD FROM US WITHIN 2 WEEKS OF THE VACANCY CLOSING DATE, THEN YOU SHOULD ASSUME THAT UNFORTUNATELY ON THIS OCCASION, YOU HAVE BEEN UNSUCCESSFUL.
