Consultant Acute Physician with Special Interest - Palliative Care
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.
The Bury & Rochdale Care Organisation includes Fairfield General Hospital, Rochdale Infirmary and the Integrated Community Services of Heywood, Middleton and Rochdale.
There are eight directorates within the CO;
- Emergency & Urgent Care Directorate (Bury)
- General & Specialist Medicine Directorate (Bury)
- Elective Orthopaedic & ENT Directorate (Bury)
- Gastroenterology Directorate (Bury)
- Clinical Support Services (Bury)
- HMR Integrated Neighbourhood Teams Directorate
