Jonathan Moise – Medical Director
Jonathan has a strong track record in successfully delivering change within Greater Manchester and is a highly experienced medical professional, particularly in the field of maternity and neonatal services, where he has held a number of senior posts since his initial appointment in Greater Manchester in 2003.
Jonathan came to Greater Manchester in 2003 when he was appointed Consultant Neonatologist at Salford Royal (then Hope Hospital). In 2008, he became Clinical Lead and held that role until maternity and neonatal services were decommissioned in 2011 as part of the “Making it Better” reconfiguration.
In 2011, he moved to Oldham as Clinical Director for Neonatal Services and together with colleagues led the development of a new tertiary Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), which opened in 2012 and is now well established as one of Greater Manchester’s three NICUs.
He remained Clinical Director until 2016, when he was appointed as Divisional Clinical Director of the Women and Children’s Division.
Jonathan has been deeply involved in the Greater Manchester/North West Neonatal Network for many years and is Clinical Lead for the Network. He also has a keen interest in teaching and training doctors and nurses. He teaches on courses for midwives and Advanced Neonatal Nurse Practitioners at Salford University and is an Academic Advisor and Honorary Senior Lecturer in Manchester University Medical School.
He is a firm believer in the importance of multi-disciplinary team working and looks forward to working with colleagues to further develop the Care Organisation, building on the excellent progress made over the last couple of years, and to working with colleagues in primary, community care and social services to further integrate health and social care services in Oldham.
Jonathan will be a great asset to our leadership team and I’m sure you will join me in welcoming his appointment to the post of Medical Director at such an important time for the organisation.
Jonathan will be taking up his post on a full time basis in April 2020.
