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.

SRFT is advanced in its use of technology; an example of which is the state of the art Electronic Patient Record (EPR) system.

SRFT is the Greater Manchester Centre for Neurosciences and the Comprehensive Stroke Centre for the GM population. Intra-arterial (IA) treatment for acute stroke is supported 8am-6pm 7 days per week with further plans for future expansion. Christie at Salford opened in July 2010 and Salford Neuroradiology supports the SRS (stereotactic radiosurgery) and proton beam therapy services.

SRFT is the regional centre for spinal surgery and serves a population of 3.2 million.

This provides exciting opportunities for collaborative working, including radiology, to work efficiently, grow our capacity and improve quality.
