Hello. We are NWAS.

Dear Candidate

Thank you

Each year we receive approximately 1.7 million 999 calls, respond to over 1 million emergency incidents and make more than 1.3 million patient transport journeys and deliver the regional NHS 111 service across the region for people. We are proud to be Rated ‘Good’ by the CQC and Ofsted.

Ambulance services and the NHS system has been a huge focus of the media for many months, as we continued to face huge demand on our services and a scale of industrial action not seen by the service in over three decades. Despite this we have continued to move forward with improvements, and we have led regional and national efforts to improve urgent and emergency care. As you will see in our Strategy, our people are at the heart of everything we do, and we are committed to making this Trust a great place to work, through looking after our staff, creating a safe working environment, investing in their development, and leading with compassion.

Our new Executive Director of Operations will play critical role in all aspects of the Trust’s leadership and will lead delivery of the operational response of all service delivery across the Trust, including the leadership of emergency services, resilience and emergency planning, emergency operations centres, integrated Urgent care, 111 and Patient Transport Services.

The Area Director is a key member of this team and will lead operational delivery in the Manchester region. Working with the Executive team, they will engage strategically across the local health and care system, building collaboration and supporting the delivery of shared solutions.

We welcome values-based leaders who will give their all to provide quality care now and in the future. Those who can lead teams to get the best outcome.

And those who show compassion and strength in some of the most challenging and emotional situations. We recognise strength in diversity and strive to create an inclusive culture, releasing the potential from our workforce whatever their background and experience.
