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.


An exciting opportunity has arisen within the Renal Vascular Access Specialist Nurse Team for a well-motivated Registered Nurse with full NMC registration and significant experience within renal and haemodialysis to lead and support the team.

You will work collaboratively working across both divisional and organisational boundaries, within the wider multidisciplinary team; therefore an excellent ability to communicate with colleagues at a higher level is essential.

You will be committed to developing the dialysis access service for patients whilst maintaining a compassionate approach to a patient population who often have complex needs.

You will also be pivotal in delivering education and training to colleagues through the service and in other specialties therefore you will ideally possess teaching experience within your current role.

Planning and organisational abilities are essential and you must be able to demonstrate that you possess initiative and leadership skills to work unsupervised and support a nurse led service. You must also be able to demonstrate that you are self-sufficient and motivated in order to deliver care that ensures a seamless service and an excellent patient experience is provided.

The service requires flexibility with hours commencing at 7.30 am and working until 6pm if required and over a five day week Monday to Friday.

In return we can provide you with a varied, challenging and supportive environment with excellent opportunities for professional development. If you are highly motivated, enthusiastic and want a new challenge we would be delighted to hear from you.
