Tameside and Glossop Partnership Engagement Network
Posted on 28th August, 2019
The Partnership Engagement Network (PEN) was established jointly by Tameside Metropolitan Borough Council (TMBC), NHS Tameside and Glossop Clinical Commissioning Group (T& GCCG) and Tameside & Glossop Integrated NHS Foundation Trust (ICFT) – aka Tameside Hospital. Set up in the autumn of 2017 PEN is part of a multi-agency approach to provide the public and our partners with an identified and structured method to influence the work of public services and to proactively feed in issues and ideas.
Involving the public is key to successful public service delivery and results in better services, more appropriately tailored to people’s needs. This approach ensures that structures exist to have ongoing conversation with the public, patients and other stakeholders, creating forums for people and organisations to get their voices heard and give the opportunity to hear about and contribute to the development of public services.
