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.

Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust has one of the strongest track records of providing excellent patient care services, financial delivery and staff satisfaction in the NHS. We are an integrated provider of hospital, community and primary care services, including the University Teaching Hospital. Our team of 7,000 staff provide local services to the City of Salford and specialist services to Greater Manchester and beyond.

The ultrasound department consists of 8 Ultrasound rooms on the acute site and one Ultrasound facility in the community. We have recently replaced two of our obstetric ultrasound machines and are hoping to move forwards with replacement ultrasound equipment in the near future to ensure all of our equipment meets the highest of standards.

The post is varied and challenging, offering opportunities to develop skills and we will attempt to accommodate professional interests where possible. In addition, we aim to offer further opportunities to develop skills in sub-specialty areas such as MSK.

The department is committed to trainee sonographers and opportunities to act as a student mentor may be possible for interested employees. The department has strong links with the University of Salford.
