Band 8a

Our new Northern Care Alliance NHS Group unites five local hospitals to deliver high quality care across the North East of Greater Manchester.

The Alliance provides the benefits of scale but delivers this locally through multiple hospital sites which make up four new Care Organisations – Bury/Rochdale, North Manchester, Oldham and Salford. Using our mantra of ‘Saving lives, Improving lives’, the aim is for our Care Organisations to work closely with the communities they serve to deliver safe, high quality and reliable care, which are trusted, connected and pioneering.

Our Care Organisations are designed to operate within our group arrangement of hospitals, community and healthcare services which bring together over 19,000 staff and the services of The Pennine Acute Hospitals NHS Trust and Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust. Our size and geographical reach means we are creating an environment each individual will be inspired and empowered to be the best they can be.  This is a really exciting time to join our new team.

The Northern Care Alliance NHS Group unites five local hospitals to deliver high quality care across the North East of Greater Manchester.

 

The Alliance provides the benefits of scale but delivers this locally through multiple hospital sites which make up four new Care Organisations – Bury/Rochdale, North Manchester, Oldham and Salford. Using our mantra of ‘Saving lives, Improving lives’, the aim is for our Care Organisations to work closely with the communities they serve to deliver safe, high quality and reliable care, which are trusted, connected and pioneering.

 

Fairfield General Hospital and Rochdale Infirmary have come together to create a care organisation with a true focus on the needs of its community. Innovative ways of delivering patient centred care used in our award winning Stroke centre at Fairfield and the pioneering HEATT car service developed at Rochdale demonstrate that this care organisation is one that provides a unique service for the surrounding population.

 

Recent CQC inspections have highlighted the high level of care provided by this care organisation, recognising both as ‘Good’

You will be expected to proactively engage with the emergency department and ensure patients presenting with medical concerns that can be treated on the same day via the ambulatory care are identified in a timely manner. You will also engage in taking referrals from community teams such as, paramedics, rapid response team in Bury/Rochdale and GPs.

  • An enthusiastic and driven management team that allow you the freedom to be brilliant but won’t leave you unsupported
  • Regular team meetings and 1:1 with your line manager

 

Advancing practice through you

 

You will be enthusiastic, motivated and committed to wanting to help drive high quality nursing/AHP skills across the hospital. As a professional with extensive knowledge you will be expected to support junior colleagues and work as a strong team player to ensure the patient gets the best care possible.  It goes without saying that you will be fully dedicated to patient-centred care and you will be willing to work closely with colleagues at all levels to ensure this continues in all areas.
