Northern Care Alliance NHS Foundation Trust
Formally established in 2021, the Northern Care Alliance NHS Foundation Trust (NCA) is one of the largest and most respected NHS providers in England, employing around 20,000 staff and serving a diverse population of 1 million people across the North part of Greater Manchester. The NCA brings together the ‘outstanding’ rated Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust with Pennine Acute Hospitals NHS Trust to create a trust that works in a group arrangement with Care Organisations in each of our localities - Salford, Oldham, Bury & Rochdale.
We have a clear focus on our ambitions and what we want to achieve. Over the next decade, it’s our ambition that NCA will become the safest and most effective organisation in the NHS. We are an organisation focused on the importance of place. We want it to be a place people all over the country will want to work. We want to challenge inequalities and improve health in all our Places.
We want to improve the lives of patients, families and carers, across all our communities. And all our colleagues and volunteers within the NCA family - because we know that improving lives means supporting our People to be healthy and happy in their profession. Our long-term plan - Vision 10, combines years of listening, feedback and insight from our People, our Populations and our Partners across our health and care services and learning from NHS organisations beyond our own.
We have a great opportunity for a Chief Nurse to join our Board.
