Our vision and principles

VISION 
 

Your Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) is led by local GPs. By inspiring all NHS colleagues, and through close working with partners, we will ensure the development of excellent, compassionate, and cost-effective care leading to longer, healthier lives.  

PRINCIPLES
 

Listening to Patients

We will listen to and act upon patients’ feedback; proactively engaging patients in decision making. This will ensure that we commission high-quality health services that meet the needs of all Tameside and Glossop residents.  

Developing innovative services closer to home 

Where possible we will develop and deliver a range of health services closer to patients’ homes. This will be partly achieved through commissioning innovative services that have been proven to be effective.  

Increasing taxpayer value for money 

We will use every pound of taxpayers’ money available to us as effectively as possible to deliver high quality health services that meet the needs of the local population.   

Improving health indicators

We will focus on prevention and health improvement, on implementing strategies for promoting social justice and for closing the opportunity gap, and on tackling health inequalities across the Tameside and Glossop area. This commitment to improving health, integrated with the pursuit of social justice, includes the need to bridge the opportunity gap for all equally, regardless of age, gender, sexual orientation, geographical or economic position, ethnicity, disability, or faith.
