Pausing routine operations
26 November 2020

Staff have been working incredibly hard to manage the increased number of patients with COVID-19 in our hospital alongside providing routine care. While staff are continuing to do this as far as possible, we have decided to postpone some planned, non-urgent operations at Tameside and Glossop Integrated Care NHS Foundation Trust. Urgent treatments and cancer operations will continue as normal.
 
Patients affected by the decision will be contacted and supported at this difficult time. This will be reviewed on a regular basis and procedures will resume as soon as possible.  If patients have any questions or queries about their appointment they can contact 0161 922 5774.
 
It is more important than ever that everyone follows guidance to minimise the spread of the virus – wear a face covering in enclose spaces, wash your hands more frequently and minimise your contact with people outside your immediate household.
 
Thank you for your continued support, patience and understanding at what continues to be a very difficult time for everyone.
