Health Information Centre (formerly Patient Information Centre)

Delivering services differently in response to Covid-19

The Health Information Centre is currently operating a telephone and email service only via 0161 922 5332 or

The Health Information Centre provides patients and their carers with health, social care and council information at an easy-to-understand level. You do not have to be a patient at the hospital to use the service; if you are a patient in the community you can request to have information posted out to you at your home. All enquiries are treated confidentially and information is provided free-of-charge.

The Health Information Centre is open Monday to Friday from 9.00a.m. to 5.00p.m. and there is an answerphone for out-of-hours calls. The Centre will respond to your enquiry within 2 working days.

The Health Information Centre is a joint project between Tameside Council and Tameside Hospital. The Centre is managed by Tameside Libraries Information Service and is located at Tameside Hospital in the main entrance of the Hartshead North Building.
