Shire Hill Hospital Glossop Tameside Hospital Sir John Oldham

Proposals have been put forward to move the intermediate care facilities offered by Glossop’s Shire Hill Hospital to Tameside Hospital.  The local Clinical Commissioning Group says it will provide closer access to specialist services there.  High Peak Council agreed at a recent meeting to represent local residents and ‘seek to secure the best care outcomes’. 

Now former Glossop GP Sir John Oldham has joined the debate putting forward a persuasive case for retaining specific care arrangements in Glossop. Most residents are against moving the hospital to Tameside citing travel difficulties.However some staff from Tameside feel that Shire Hill is in desperate need of refurbishment if it is to remain.
