LAUNCHED at Ryecroft Hall, the Life in Tameside and Glossop website will be the go-to place for health, care and geodemographic information for members of the public, health and social care providers and commissioners.
The website brings together data, intelligence and evidence from all health and social care partners in the area into one easily accessible and useable site.
It features a comprehensive directory of data sets from birth to death, demographic information and more. The website gives residents the chance to see detailed information for the ward where they live and discover health information about their area.
There is also a ‘Find Support’ page which lets residents search for community support, activities and groups in their area, from charities, local groups and organisations to statutory services. Commissioners can also use this section to audit current local health and care service provision.
Residents accessing the website can make informed decisions about their own health and wellbeing, as the information available is relevant to where they live, their age, sex and lifestyle.
As a fully-integrated care organisation emerges for the borough, it is vital that decisions to commission services are based on the most accurate and timely information available.
Debbie Watson, Interim Assistant Director of Population Health for Tameside Council, said: “Tameside and Glossop’s health and social care system faces a growing challenge: doing more and better with less. Good information is crucial to achieving a high-performing and sustainable health and social care system that is also safe and responsive to the needs of our residents.
“Working with our partners toward a shared vision of better information for improved health and wellbeing outcomes can help us to achieve the best possible health and social care services.”
