The 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.


Secondment/Fixed Term Opportunity

We are seeking an enthusiastic and motivated nurse to deliver a Nurse Led Service with single point access for hospital teams and primary care. This role requires the practitioner to provide specialist Haematology advice, assessment and review of patients with suspected or known Haematological cancer diagnosis.

You will require knowledge base and insight around cancer pathways, referrals and the complexities involved in caring for this group of patients. You will be working very closely with the Trust’s multi-disciplinary clinical, nursing, AHP teams and Haematologists.

You will have a clear understanding of the role of the Haematology CNS as a clinical expert, leader, researcher and educator. You will also be committed to the development of specialist nursing practice and demonstrate evidence of on-going professional and academic development. You will be expected to work within your own limitations and within the NMC Code of Professional Conduct at all times.

Ideally you will have successfully completed a first degree, as well as post-basic education in haematology, cancer, palliative care, acute care and be willing to undertake further study to support and develop this service.

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.
