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.

The Role and the Service
We are seeking to recruit a General Practitioner(s) with an interest in Frailty and co-morbidity to join our other GPs already in post in the Tameside and Glossop Integrated Care Foundation Trust - Extensive Care Service.
The Extensive Care Service is a fundamental part of the Trust’s ambition to improve care for those residents living with a number of long term conditions and associated health and social care issues, to improve their health and wellbeing, and reduce demand on services by ensuring that their care is managed more effectively in the community. We are working innovatively with our stakeholders on new models of care within Tameside and Glossop, this is an ambitious transformation programme. It is designed to ensure that health and social care services for the people of the Tameside & Glossop are integrated to provide better care outside of hospital.
This is an exciting role which will offer the successful candidate the opportunity to innovate and shape the service as it continues to develop.
Your Part in the Transformation Plan
The Tameside and Glossop Locality Plan set the bold ambition of raising healthy life expectancy to the North-west average by 2020. Our vision to achieve this ambition is to move quickly to a fully person-centred and integrated model of care, with a much heavier emphasis on prevention, supporting self-care and care closer to home.
We are one of the first Integrated NHS care organisations to develop Integrated Neighbourhood teams across our five Neighbourhoods; each has access to support from a range of more specialised community-based services. These include intermediate tier services such as community inpatient and discharge to assess beds, podiatry, speech and language therapies, IV therapies, community rehabilitation and dietetics, as well was some urgent care services.
The intermediate tier will provide a key interface between the Integrated Neighbourhood and the acute hospital setting ensuring that people are supported in the environment that is suited to their own needs, avoiding unplanned admissions and supporting patients to return home after hospital care. The Extensive Care Service is a key development within the Intermediate Tier.
We can offer an exciting opportunity to work in a health and care system that has excellent relationships between Local Authority, CCG, Trust and Primary Care and who are all committed to improving the health and wellbeing of the population and creating a health and care system that is sustainable, within a new model of care. We will be happy to explore opportunities for the right candidate to maintain their clinical practice in Primary Care alongside these roles.
