Consultant in Respiratory Medicine x 2
Department and Job Role
A great opportunity has arisen for an experienced and proactive Consultant in Respiratory Medicine to join our busy and dynamic team based here at North Manchester General Hospital.
The Trust provides multi-disciplinary in-patient and community respiratory services across Rochdale, Oldham and North Manchester offering early supported discharge and admissions avoidance. We work in partnership with other providers to deliver these services elsewhere within the Pennine Sector with a long term vision to integrate respiratory care across community and acute settings. Liaison and engagement with GPs and community partners is a key role of all respiratory consultants.
We are in particular looking for individuals with a subspecialty interest in lung cancer, sleep medicine or severe asthma to enhance our current services. The post holder will be involved in appropriate specialist clinics and will be actively involved in audit, teaching and research. We have opportunities for development in education, management, service development, governance as well as research.
You must have full registration with the General Medical Council and a valid licence to practise. All applicants must be on the specialist register in respiratory medicine or within 6 months of achieving a CCT (or equivalent) at the date of interview.
The Respiratory Service at Pennine provides general respiratory and tertiary services to a catchment population of 820,000 in the North-East sector of Greater Manchester. As well as dedicated inpatient facilities the service also provides chest clinics supported by specialist nurses and allied health professionals.
The services also run world class specialist services including lung cancer, severe asthma, interstitial lung disease, occupational lung disease, pleural and sleep clinics. Bronchoscopies, EBUS and thoracoscopy are among the planned investigations that are undertaken as well as having a specific bronchial challenge suite.
There are currently thirteen Consultant Respiratory Physicians across Pennine footprint and a further seven Physicians with a respiratory interest within the Trust who have completed specialist training in respiratory medicine to provide a vibrant and developing multi-site service.
Our new Northern Care Alliance NHS Group 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 team.
The Trust’s management structure aligns the divisional and directorate structure into 4 Care Organisations (Bury & Rochdale; Oldham, North Manchester and Salford).
Each Care Organisation consists of a Medical Director, a Nursing Director, a Managing Director, Finance Manager and an Associate Director of Workforce. The Divisional Management Team consists of a Divisional Managing Director, Divisional Medical Director and a Divisional Director of Nursing. Directorate Teams within each Division are also established within each care organisation.
