With immediate effect departments and services are asked to destroy all patient information leaflets and other materials that display the old Pennine Acute Hospitals NHS Trust, Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust and Northern Care Alliance Group logos and organisational branding from all patient areas.
This is because legally these organisations do not exist. Since October 2021 we are now Northern Care Alliance NHS Foundation Trust.
The logo and branding changes also apply to all Pennine Care and Bridgewater Services that transferred to Northern Care Alliance NHS Foundation Trust.
Document control have removed digital versions of patient information leaflets from the NCA website that still display the old logo’s and organisational branding. Any remaining leaflets are currently being transferred into the approved Northern Care Alliance NHS Foundation Trust leaflet template.
If you require leaflets to be reordered for your service or if a digital version of a leaflet for your service is no longer available on the website please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for support.
All other corporate templates and how to update your email signature to the new template can be can be found on My Hub, the NCA intranet. See NCA branding guidelines for formats.
