Salford Care Organisation
Salford Care Organisation is responsible for delivering a range of community and primary care services across Salford and at Salford Royal. It also delivers specialist services to Greater Manchester and beyond.
It was the first in the North of England to achieve the highest rating of Outstanding by the Care Quality Commission. Salford Royal is home to the Manchester Centre for Clinical Neurosciences and the Geoffrey Jefferson Brain Research Centre, and as a University Teaching Trust, is dedicated to training and educating clinicians of the future.
Salford Royal is the major trauma centre for Greater Manchester and the hub site for emergency General Surgery for the North West of Greater Manchester. A new £68million hospital is currently being built, which will include a resuscitation area, five emergency theatres, inpatient beds, diagnostic imaging, and a helipad, meaning seriously ill patients will reach the site even quicker for their life-saving treatment. From 2023 the James Potter Building will aim to receive 90% of all major trauma patients in Greater Manchester and will be the hub site for high-risk emergency general surgery across Bolton, Salford and Wigan.
