01 October 2020

The Pennine Acute Hospitals NHS Trust (PAT), which serves the communities of North Manchester, Bury, Rochdale, Oldham and the surrounding villages and towns, is holding its Annual Public Meeting (APM) on Wednesday, 7th October, 5.30 – 6.30pm and the public is being invited to join the meeting online.

From 1st April 2020, the Northern Care Alliance NHS Group (NCA), which brings together staff and service across Salford Royal and Pennine Acute Trusts, has continued to manage hospital and community healthcare services through its Salford, Oldham, Bury and Rochdale Care Organisations, whilst Manchester University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (MFT) from 1 April 2020 took responsibility for managing North Manchester General Hospital, in preparation for formal alignment of management responsibility for these services to the NCA and MFT on 1st April 2021. 

In line with those interim management arrangements and the introduction of an interim PAT Board of Directors to oversee the effective delivery of those arrangements, the PAT APM is being held as a separate meeting to the NCA Annual Members Meeting (AMM) this year.

During the PAT APM, the Board will present the Annual Report and Accounts for the last financial year (2019/20), covering the key highlights and achievements from across the North East Sector Care Organisations; the full meeting agenda can be viewed here
