Senior Sister / Charge Nurse – Emergency Medicine

Band 7

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 17,000 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 by to be the best they can be.  This is a really exciting time to join our new team.


As we continue to develop as a Major Trauma Centre and to meet the needs of our complex patient caseload, the Emergency Department is looking to employ a Band 7 Emergency Nurse.

You will be a highly skilled nurse with drive, commitment and a strong sense of leadership to join our innovative team aiming to deliver excellent patient centred care.

This is a unique band 7 role as you will be expected to rotate into every area of the ED whilst also regularly undertaking the roles of Nurse-in-Charge and Emergency Nurse Practitioner. You will also be involved in the streaming of appropriate patients to Primary Care in addition to being given significant areas of managerial responsibility.

If you are a knowledgeable and skilled practitioner in the field of emergency care with significant experience at Band 6 or above, this could be the role for you. Ideally, you will have a recognised Nurse Practitioner qualification (Developing Clinical Skills or equivalent).

You will be able to demonstrate a proven clinical ability at Band 6 or above; be able to manage all aspects of the Emergency Department on a daily basis, including a real understanding of flow and capacity; and the leadership ability to lead and support the department in achieving Trust goals.

You will be expected to understand and promote a fair but demanding culture of continuous improvement among all of our team.

A mentorship or teaching qualification is desirable.

If you have the drive and determination to succeed in a progressive, successful organisation, whilst ensuring that high quality, safe care, underpinned by best practice, is delivered consistently we would like you to apply.

Salford Royal has teamed up with housing association Salix Homes to provide a 26-apartment complex for doctors, nurses and other clinical staff new to the Trust. Please enquire upon appointment to review availability.

In line with the Trust’s Single Equality Scheme we welcome applications from everyone irrespective of ethnic origin, disability, age, gender, sexual preference, disability, nationality, religion, marital status, social back ground or trade union membership. However, as members of ethnicity minority groups and individuals with disabilities are currently under-represented at this level of post, we would encourage applications from members of these groups. Appointment will be based on merit alone.
