Chief Executive Recruitment

Vision and ambition

We have a bold vision of ‘Saving Lives, Improving Lives’ by delivering highly reliable care and services, at scale, which are trusted, connected  and pioneering.

We aim to transform the lives of over 1 million people we serve through better integration of care and services and we have developed a clear  method to support our relentless pursuit of health and care excellence. The case for collaboration is demonstrated by SRFT’s track record for  quality and safety, and the improvements made at Pennine Acute Hospitals since receiving leadership support from SRFT. Our approach  includes:

  • Integrating care – leading and working with Local Care Organisations (LCOs) to integrate care.
  • Supporting our people – though leadership, OD and our employee value proposition.
  • Single shared services – creating cohesive models to what was previously fragmented.
  • Standard Operating Models (SOMs) – to create consistent, reliable, best-practice services.
  • Digital enablers – with innovations in practice and technology to support our plans.

We operate Care Organisations across Salford, Oldham, Bury and Rochdale. To enable the safe delivery of high-quality care at scale, a  leadership team of directors has clear accountability and authority to govern each Care Organisation. The leadership team ensures healthcare  services are clinically and financially sustainable across a number of localities. This means that patients, no matter where they are treated in  the Group, will experience personalised care that is based on need and high standards of care are consistent.

Each Care Organisation leadership team comprises a Medical Director, a Director of Nursing, Director of Operations, a Finance Director and  Director of HR. Together they are responsible for the day to day running of the hospitals and community services of a Care Organisation. Each  leadership team also has its own Chief Officer, one of the leadership team appointed to a joint role with their functional responsibility.
