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.

This is a new 12-month clinical fellowship that offers the opportunity for you to develop and learn subspecialty-level skills in the management of complex colorectal disease, in particular intestinal failure (IF) and complex inflammatory bowel disease (IBD).

You will be part of the Intestinal Failure service as well as the Colorectal Unit and will take part in the emergency general surgical on-call rota (1:12).

This post would be suitable for a Post-CCT SpR or for an SpR (ST7 or 8) in training who wishes to take Out of Programme Experience (OOPE).

Salford Royal is a major teaching hospital of the University of Manchester School of Medicine. There are well developed sub-speciality interests within the Department of Surgery.

The Irving Intestinal Failure Unit (IFU) at Salford Royal Hospital is one of two nationally funded IFUs in the UK, managing patients with type 2 and 3 IF from Great Britain and Ireland and overseas. The Unit cares for 25 inpatients and performs 40-45 major IF operations per year, typically involving restoration of gastrointestinal continuity and abdominal wall reconstruction.

These operations often involve other specialties, such as urology, gynaecology and plastic surgery.

The Colorectal Unit consists of seven consultants with a range of special interests. The Unit runs a busy IBD service jointly with the Department of Gastroenterology and, in many cases, the IFU.

Due to changing referral patterns as well as the IF services offered in this hospital, the IBD practice at Salford has expanded markedly over the past few years. We perform 40-50 abdominal operations for Crohn’s disease and 8-12 ileoanal pouch procedures per year. The Unit has a busy laparoscopic practice as one of the LAPCO instructor sites. Many bowel resections for IBD, and most ileoanal pouch procedures, are performed laparoscopically.   

The Colorectal Unit also runs a weekly tertiary referral clinic for complex cases from the North West of England and beyond. There are two weekly MDT conferences for IBD and a quarterly national small intestine transplant MDT. The IFU runs a weekly MDT covering all in-patients.

Salford Royal is a recognised level 3 GI training unit and the GI surgeons at Hope have a strong track record in surgical teaching, having played leading roles in the development of the Care of the Critically Ill Surgical Patient (CCrISP) course and the M62 Course.
