Hospital staff's special festive song for appeal

Staff at Tameside Hospital have made a special festive video dedicated to its £1 million Scanner Appeal, which we at Quest Media Network are also supporting. 

Released just before Christmas, the video - which you can watch above - is introduced by Tameside and Glossop NHS Trust Chief Executive Karen James, who received an OBE in the New Year's Honours List for her work in turning around the crisis-hit hospital in the last six years. 

Hospital staff then burst into a specially created song for the appeal, to the tune of Joe Cocker's song 'You Can Leave Your Hat On'. 

Also included in the video is a new 2020 calendar, which has been released by the Tameside and Glossop Integrated Care NHS Foundation Trust. It features images of the hospital's porters team and copies are now on sale to help raise funds for the appeal. 

The Scanner Appeal campaign was launched back in September, with the aim of raising £1 million for a new CT scanner for the Ashton-based hospital. It has already been supported far and wide by people and businesses throughout Tameside and Glossop, but you can still do your bit. 

Scanner Appeal badges are available at locations across Tameside to support the appeal, for a suggested donation of £2. 

You can also donate to the appeal online at
