Tameside General Hospital is a National Health Service (NHS) hospital situated in Ashton-under-Lyne. Run by Tameside Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, it serves the surrounding area of Tameside in Greater Manchester, and the town of Glossop in Derbyshire. Employing just under 2,500 staff, the hospital provides a wide array of healthcare one would associate with general hospitals, including Accident and Emergency services, and full consultant-led obstetric and paediatric hospital services for women, children and babies.HistoryTameside Hospital has been around in one form or another since its foundation in 1861 by founders Samuel Oldham and Henry Darnton. Oldham's stated intention in founding Ashton District Infirmary was to create an institution "for the relief and cure of sick and indigent persons resident, employed, or having been employed within 3½ miles of Ashton Town Hall." After its formation a separate workhouse was built nearby.Upon the formation of the NHS in 1948, the old hospital joined with the buildings of the old workhouse to form the new Ashton-under-Lyne General Hospital, now dedicated to fulfilling the NHS's ideals of providing healthcare to all, regardless of ability to pay. The hospital changed its name to Tameside General Hospital in 1976, following the establishment of Tameside Metropolitan Borough Council in 1974 and over the following decades new buildings were built to provide better standards of care for local people.
