Hospital Site Co-ordinator

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 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.

___________________________________________________________________________

Four Care Organisations (Oldham, Bury/Rochdale, North Manchester and Salford) have been created who provide local leadership with the aim to build strong relationships with the local social care and health providers. The Care Quality Commission (CQC) inspection in October/November 2017 found the Medical Service at Fairfield General Hospital has improved by two ratings to outstanding. This rates the medical services at Fairfield General Hospital to be one of the best in Greater Manchester and amongst the best in the country. As a site, Fairfield General Hospital is now rated as Good.

A great opportunity has arisen for an experienced and proactive ‘job role’ to join our busy and dynamic site team.

  • The post holder will be expected to provide support and leadership in hours on site issues.
  • This is a crucial role in the organisation and requires the ability to work independently and pro-actively escalating concerns to the senior manager on site in accordance with local protocols.
  • Excellent communication skills are paramount to the success of this role as the post holder will play a key part in maintaining operational resilience and ensuring the patient experience is at the centre of all decision making.
