Greater Manchester Neuroscience Centre
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.
Salford Royal has one of the strongest track records of providing excellent patient care services, financial delivery and staff satisfaction in the NHS and has recently become only the second Trust in the country to earn an overall rating of ‘outstanding’ by the Care Quality Commission.
The Greater Manchester Neuroscience Centre based at Salford Royal Foundation Trust is looking for Consultant Neurologists to join an established team of 37 plus Consultant colleagues, delivering inpatient and outpatient services across Greater Manchester.
