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.
Oldham Care Organisation has three divisions; Surgery, Medicine and Women & Children. Diagnostic Services are provided on a Trust wide basis. There is on site support for Quality Improvement, Human Resources and Governance. Emergency Medicine is part of the Emergency & Urgent Care Directorate sited within the Division of Medicine. The Royal Oldham Hospital has 560 beds plus Christie at Oldham on site. There is access to comprehensive diagnostics including MRI/CT and PACS with digital imaging.
Our site has undergone some major developments with full refurbishment of the Emergency Department and dedicated paediatric area, new Women’s & Children’s unit including a tertiary neonatal unit and a new medical assessment unit and purpose-built Ambulatory Emergency Care Unit and a centralised laboratory.
