Our new Northern Care Alliance NHS Group (NCA) 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.

The Bury Local Care Organisation was launched on 1 April 2019 with the aim of enabling improvements in population health and wellbeing by providing integrated health and care services to the people of Bury. We are an innovative formal alliance of organisations: Northern Care Alliance NHS Group (Salford Royal and Pennine Acute Hospital NHS Trusts); Pennine Care NHS Foundation Trust; Bury Council; Bury GP Federation; BARDOC; Bury Voluntary, Community and Faith Alliance; Persona Care and Support Ltd.

Applications are welcome from people currently working in any of the above organisations.

Background

One of the key ways that health and social care partners are working together in Bury to improve services is the development of the Intermediate Tier services.

The proposed delivery model is designed to bring together health and social workers into a unified Bury-wide integrated team delivering intermediate care services under single leadership. The key deliverables are to:

  • Introduce home-based care into Bury’s intermediate care offer;
  • Create additional enhanced IMC beds through the dual registration of Killelea House;
  • Bring the existing enhanced IMC beds from Bealey Community Hospital under the intermediate tier offer; and
  • Relaunch Rapid Community Response with a broader multidisciplinary team.

It is also intended that the new model of service delivery should change the current pattern of service demand, use and patient flow by:

  • Focusing on acute admission avoidance by increasing step-up referrals;
  • Achieving higher bed occupancy; and
  • Reducing average length of stay.

The opportunity

The post holder will be an autonomous practitioner who will be expected to take an active role in the advanced assessment, management and treatment of patients over 18 years of age.

The primary role for this post is within Rapid Community Response service but could involve rotation across the Bury Urgent Care system. The post holder will be expected to work flexibly across the whole Intermediate Tier

The post holder will lead in developing, delivering and evaluating high quality patient centred services in conjunction with the associated clinical teams to ensure this is incorporated within the Intermediate Tier and Local Care Organisation objectives.
