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 Royal Oldham Care Organisation has a bright future ahead of it. As part of the Healthier Together project it will be the specialist high acuity site for high risk elective and emergency general surgery in the North East sector. The exciting and innovative plans will see Oldham benefit from around £25 million investment to bring patient activity under the full scope of Healthier Together.

An opportunity has now arisen to join the senior nursing team in the role of Assistant Director of Nursing Services (ADNS) managing our orthopaedic trauma and vascular nursing teams.

As a member of the senior nurse leadership team the post holder will be responsible for leading their teams on a day to day basis and supporting innovative and forward thinking care at what can only be described as a major turning point in the quality and accessibility of healthcare offered across the community.


We care about you as much as we care about our patients and want to make sure you have the best career possible with us. As such we offer:
  • A passionate and forward thinking executive leadership team
  • A committed workforce, dedicated to delivering high quality care to all
  • A Care Organisation with clear vision and strong links to its community
  • Flexibility and variety in the way you work


We are seeking an experienced nurse leader to bring enthusiasm and positive energy to our excellent clinical teams.

The successful applicant will have the ability to recognise and support the talents of others and lead their team and the division in the delivery of an exemplary standard of care.

You will be someone who remains calm under pressure, with an ability to take charge when needed with an encouraging and supportive approach. Your attention to detail and clear passion for delivering an efficient, high quality service will stand you out from the crowd.

We would welcome the chance to introduce you to our teams and show you around. Please contact us to arrange an informal discussion with a senior team member.
