Join us and be part of something bigger.

We have paved the way for excellence in Integrated Care and in July 2016 took the  pioneering step to form one of the first Integrated Care Organisations.  We now provide adult social care services alongside our established healthcare services, which has given us the chance to develop better, more joined up ways of working that deliver improved outcomes for the local community. 


An exciting opportunity has arisen for a Research Practitioner with relevant experience to join the Acute Research Delivery Team at Salford Royal Hospital. The team is part of the NIHR Clinical Research Network (Manchester) Division 2 and 6.

The team is involved in 20 plus clinical trials involving patients diagnosed with stroke, brain injury, requiring level 3 care or medical emergency . As part of the National Institute for Health Research, we help to provide the infrastructure that allows high-quality clinical research to take place in the NHS, so that patients can benefit from new and better treatments, and we can learn how to improve NHS healthcare for the future.

Salford Royal is a highly active research trust with over 100 research nurses, research practitioners and AHP’s on site. We are in the midst of exciting times for research professionals with the expanding remit of research. You will be part of an enthusiastic research community with the opportunity to share best practice with highly experienced colleagues. We have the capacity to take on developmental research professionals and to provide you with full developmental support.

The trials conducted by the Acute Research Delivery at Salford Royal Hospital include haemostatic emergency trials, hyperacute stroke intervention, Ventilation Studies, Traumatic brain injury and stem cells implantation.

In line with the Trust’s Single Equality Scheme we welcome applications from everyone irrespective of ethnic origin, disability, age, gender, gender identity,
sexual preference, disability, nationality, religion, marital status, social back ground or trade union membership. However, as members of ethnicity minority groups and individuals with disabilities are currently under-represented at this level of post, we would encourage applications from members of these groups. Appointment will be based on merit alone.
