About the Trust

Formed in 2002, Pennine Care has grown to become a leading provider of community and mental health services.

Our vision is to deliver the best care to patients, people and families in our local communities, by working effectively with partners to help people to live well.

We provide services across six boroughs of Greater Manchester - Bury, Oldham, Rochdale, Stockport, Tameside and Glossop and Trafford – with a combined population of more than 1.3 million people.

Our 6,000 community and mental health staff work tirelessly to deliver the very best care – and provide around 2.4 million patient contacts each year. We are privileged that some of the most talented and leading experts choose to work for us.

We consider ourselves lucky to be based just a few miles from the wonderful city of Manchester. If you’re looking to re-locate, there’s no GREATER place to live and work than MANCHESTER.                                                  

Our city offers an outstanding, yet affordable quality of life. Where else does vibrant nightlife and diverse culture meet the peace and tranquillity of the rolling Pennines?

Interviews to be held 3rd April 2019 


We currently have an opportunity for a receptionist to join our busy administration team based at Birch Hill Hospital within the Outpatients Department.

You will be required to deliver an efficient and effective reception service and  you must be able to demonstrate effective customer care skills when dealing with members of the public and staff.
