Pennine Acute Hospitals NHS Trust is an acute hospital Trust which operates Fairfield General Hospital, Bury, North Manchester General Hospital, the Royal Oldham Hospital and Rochdale Infirmary, in Greater Manchester. It is the largest non-teaching Trust in England.

Not to be confused with Pennine Care NHS Foundation Trust also based in Greater Manchester.

Dr Fairfield, the Chief Executive of Northumberland, Tyne and Wear NHS Foundation Trust is moving in 2014 to the Trust on the retirement of John Saxby.[1]

The trust was highly commended in the progressive research culture category at the Health Service Journal Awards 2012 and has seen a large increase in recruitment to clinical trials.[2]

The trust did poorly in the Friends and Family Test in March 2013, with 48% of staff saying they would not recommend their workplace to relatives and friends - in the bottom 20 in England.[3]
