In addition to delivering high quality services to treat and improve the health of the people of Tameside and Glossop; we have a responsibility to inform and educate people about the services available locally, and the things that they can do themselves to remain healthy - hopefully reducing the need for medical treatment.
To help achieve this, we often run public 'social marketing campaigns' to address local health issues - these may range from reducing their alcohol intake to smoking cessation and mental health issues. In this section of the website you will find a synopsis of our current campaigns.
What is Social Marketing?
Social marketing is simply implementing concepts and techniques (such as advertising and community outreach etc) to encourage people to change their behaviour. For example, this may include asking people not to smoke in public areas, asking them to use seat belts, or prompting to make lifestyle changes such as drinking less alcohol.
