Assistant Practitioner - Community Rehab and Falls Service

Band 4

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.


Integrated care is all about providing better care and support to our patients, users and the people of Salford by co-ordinating our services more effectively, with the focus on improving the health and wellbeing of people across the city.

Salford Together is a partnership between NHS Salford Clinical Commissioning Group,Salford City Council, Salford Royal and Greater Manchester West Mental Health NHS Foundation Trust.

Together, this partnership is working to integrate health and social care for older people in Salford, bringing the contributions of GPs, District Nurses, social workers, mental health professionals, care homes, voluntary organisations and local hospitals into a more aligned system and provide older people with the support they need to manage their own care.
