Formally established in 2021, the Northern Care Alliance NHS Foundation Trust (NCA) is one of the largest and most respected NHS providers in England, employing around 20,000 staff and serving a diverse population of 1 million people across the North part of Greater Manchester. The NCA brings together the ‘outstanding’ rated Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust with Pennine Acute Hospitals NHS Trust to create a trust that works in a group arrangement with Care Organisations in each of our localities - Salford, Oldham, Bury & Rochdale. 

We have a clear focus on our ambitions and what we want to achieve. Over the next decade, it’s our ambition that NCA will become the safest and most effective organisation in the NHS. We are an organisation focused on the importance of place. We want it to be a place people all over the country will want to work. We want to challenge inequalities and improve health in all our Places.

We want to improve the lives of patients, families and carers, across all our communities. And all our colleagues and volunteers within the NCA family - because we know that improving lives means supporting our People to be healthy and happy in their profession. Our long-term plan - Vision 10, combines years of listening, feedback and insight from our People, our Populations and our Partners across our health and care services and learning from NHS organisations beyond our own.

We have a great opportunity for a Chief Nurse to join our Board.  As a key member of our executive team, you will have responsibility for contributing to a culture that is person centred, ensuring a great experience for colleagues and patients and creating an environment that promotes personal accountability and delivers continuous improvement.  You will provide vision, inspiration and professional leadership to nurses, midwives, Allied Health and social care professionals, promoting excellence in all areas of clinical practice and patient care, ensuring that quality and patient safety is at the heart of everything we do. 

As an experienced Director of Nursing, you will be ready to bring your passion and energy to our fantastic organisation.  Working across systems, leading change and being able to demonstrate your ability to take teams with you in challenging circumstances.  Most of all you will bring your confidence, kindness, integrity and flexibility, role modelling the behaviours we want to see across the organisation.
