Budget Conversation 2020-21


Tameside Council (TMBC) and NHS Tameside and Glossop Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) have come together to form the Tameside and Glossop Strategic Commission. We are responsible for a range of services from bin collections through care for the elderly to the provision of GP surgeries.

The total amount of money spent by both organisations combined is £935 million a year. Although a significant sum of money that amount has reduced considerably over recent years due to cuts in funding from central Government, particularly for the Council. Council funding from central Government has been reduced by half in real terms since 2010. We have had to save £160 million in the last 6 years to balance the books. We have to save a further £33 million over this year and next to balance the budget. As such both organisations have to find new and innovative ways to provide the services local people want.

Both Tameside Council and NHS Tameside and Glossop Clinical Commissioning Group have to set a balanced budget for 2020/21. To prepare a balanced budget a number of considerations have to be taken into account. These include legal and statutory requirements placed on us by Government, an understanding of the need for different services based on the analysis of existing service use, new ideas and opportunities including looking at what other areas are doing and the need to make savings while continuing to deliver for our community. In addition the views of local people are important in helping us understand your priorities and informing the budget setting.

Please read the information at the link below that explains in more detail where the money spent on local services comes from and what types of services it is spent on.

The figures linked to below are an indicative guide to the scale of spending and the main areas of spend. The figures are not a draft budget for 2020/21. Please also note Tameside & Glossop Strategic Commission provide health services for Tameside & Glossop and council services for Tameside only. Council services in Glossop are the responsibility of Derbyshire County Council and High Peak Borough Council and are not part of this budget conversation.
