Tameside and Glossop Integrated Care Foundation Trust: Place Based Paediatrics

The place based paediatric offer across Tameside and Glossop consists of a number of initiatives that support children and their families being seen and treated by the most appropriate professional, at the right time and in the right place:

  • Electronic Advice and Guidance (A&G); a system that allows GPs to request electronic pre-referral advice from consultant paediatricians from the trust;
  • Children’s Community Clinical Meetings; regular forums between secondary care and general practice clinicians to discuss clinical cases and pathways;
  • Emergency Department In-Reach; support to the ED to assess acutely unwell children and determine the most appropriate treatment pathway.
