Our service is run by Pennine Care, which provides a range of NHS mental health, learning disability and autism services across Greater Manchester.
When we launched our service in April 2021, we were proud to become the very first NHS trust in the northwest of England to offer transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) for treatment resistant depression. This means where medication and other therapies haven’t worked, aren’t appropriate, or the patient doesn't wish to try them.
There are three strands to our service:
Pennine Care NHS patients
The cost of your treatment will be covered by Pennine Care, if you're currently a patient, or live in our footprint (Bury, Heywood, Middleton, Rochdale, Oldham, Stockport, Tameside, Glossop).
Non-Pennine Care NHS patients
Subject to funding approval, we can offer NHS funded treatment to non-Pennine Care patients. This means people who don't live in the Pennine Care footprint (Bury, Heywood, Middleton, Rochdale, Oldham, Stockport, Tameside, Glossop).
To cover the cost of your treatment, a funding application must be made to the your local integrated care board. We can guide you through this process, once we receive the referral.
People can choose to self-fund their treatment, or use private health insurance. Click here for pricing details.

To improve the care and experience our patients receive, we have taken part in the national TMS BRIGhTMIND study.
It allowed us to be at the forefront and to contribute to the further development of transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), access equipment and additional funding and will open up opportunities for further research studies.
