The Pennine Acute Hospitals Trust serves the communities of North Manchester, Bury, Rochdale and Oldham, along with the surrounding towns and villages. This area is collectively known as the North-East sector of Greater Manchester and has a population of around 820,000.
It is a large Trust with a total operating budget of over half a billion pounds. Its main commissioners are NHS Bury, NHS Heywood, Middleton and Rochdale, NHS Oldham and NHS Manchester.
The Trust provides a range of elective emergency, district general services, some specialist services and operates from four sites:
•Fairfield General Hospital, Bury
•North Manchester General Hospital
•The Royal Oldham Hospital
Our major services are largely situated on two sites at North Manchester General Hospital and The Royal Oldham Hospital, each serving a population of approximately 400,000. This population base ties in with the recommendations of various Royal Colleges (the bodies that plan doctors' training) about the size of population needed to maintain services.
In May 2016 the Trust formed a new improved partnership with the University of Manchester Medical School which means the Trust is now teaching even more doctors as a Teaching Hospital Trust.
Following a large-scale redesign of our clinical services between 2010 and 2013, new arrangements now mean we provide two major emergency receiving hospitals at North Manchester and The Royal Oldham, supported by our emergency medical and elective surgery services at Fairfield General.
Our innovative Urgent Care Centre, Clinical Assessment Unit and day surgery services at Rochdale Infirmary bring us to the position where we have the critical mass of population and patient throughput to ensure these services remain clinically sustainable for the future – less
