Band 5

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.


Would you like to consolidate and further develop your communication and dysphagia skills within an acute setting?

We are looking to recruit a Band 5 Speech and Language Therapist. The post holder will input to the assessment and management of communication and swallowing difficulties across the acute service, and there will be opportunities to work within specialities including Major Trauma, Neurosurgery and Neuro-rehabilitation.

We are seeking to recruit an enthusiastic Band 5 who has maximized opportunities outside of undergraduate placements to join our team. Please note you will be expected to input to the weekend working rota.

You should have a degree in Speech and Language Therapy and be registered with the HPC.

Salford Royal has teamed up with housing association Salix Homes to provide a 26-apartment complex for doctors, nurses and other clinical staff who work at the organisation. Subsidised accommodation is available to new entrants to the Trust.

In line with the Trust’s Single Equality Scheme we welcome applications from everyone irrespective of ethnic origin, disability, age, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, disability, nationality, religion, marital status, social back ground or trade union membership. However, as members of ethnicity minority  groups and individuals with disabilities are currently under-represented at this level of post, we would encourage applications from members of these groups.  Appointment will be based on merit alone.
