Full Time
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 pain service combines both acute and persistent pain management within the hospital setting, with additional integrated, multidisciplinary, community outpatient persistent pain services.

Your role will be to provide assessment, intervention and specialist advice to patients; delivering education to the general public, nursing staff and other team members within the Alliance in relation to pain management. You will be required to deputise for the Clinical Nurse Specialist in her absence and carry out audit/research to ensure evidence-based practice and excellent patient care is delivered at all times.
