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.


You will join our multidisciplinary team within the Intensive Care Unit at Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust.

We welcome applications from both Junior and Senior Clinical Fellows and the post is open to anaesthetists, physicians or emergency medicine doctors but previous experience of intensive care medicine is essential however airway skills are not essential.

This busy tertiary referral neuroscience/general adult ICU, has around 1000 admissions a year to 18 level 3 beds. In addition the Trust has major trauma centre status.

Fifteen consultants provide a consultant led service to the patients on the ICU. The consultant body includes intensivists with backgrounds in anaesthesia, respiratory medicine, academia, emergency medicine and acute medicine. They are supported by experienced and highly skilled nursing staff, and a multi-disciplinary team of trainee doctors.

The junior trainee medical staff compliment includes total of 8 trainees from Foundation programmes, ACCS programmes and anaesthesia parent specialties. In addition, the unit provides training for up to 9 more senior trainees including advanced ICM posts.

The ICU moved to a new state of the art purpose built facility in September 2011.

The job would afford you clinical exposure to a broad case mix including neuroscience, trauma, intestinal failure and renal failure patients as well as a general ICU case mix.

We have a strong history of successfully supporting fellows through higher professional examinations and attainment of substantive posts.

There would be the opportunity to gain skills and accreditation in US including ECHO.

Quality Improvement
Neurointensive Care
Transfer Medicine

Alternatively, there would be the opportunity to develop educational skills, alongside supervision of undergraduate and postgraduate trainees.

The ICU runs a fully accredited training programme which has an excellent local reputation. The successful candidates would be expected to participate in the programme and ongoing appraisal.

There would also be opportunity to assist with the quality improvement work that is undertaken within the department.
