Please be advised that BANES, Swindon, Wiltshire CCGs will be merging into one single CCG (BSW) CCG from the 1st April 2020. If you commence employment after the 1st April you will be employed by the new organisation. If you are employed before the 1st April you will automatically transfer across to BSW CCG on the 1st April 2020.

It’s an exciting time for us; we’re an evolving organisation and we need dynamic and passionate people who always strive for ‘better’. Bath and North East Somerset (BaNES), Swindon and Wiltshire Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) will become Bath and North East Somerset, Swindon and Wiltshire (BSW) CCG from 1 April 2020.

The new organisation’s Governing Body comprises a majority of clinical decision-makers, including a Secondary Care Specialist. We invite applications to this position from highly regarded clinical leaders. As Secondary Care Specialist, you will

  • Give an independent strategic clinical view on all aspects of CCG business;
  • Contribute a generic view from the perspective of a secondary care doctor whilst putting aside specific issues relating to their own clinical practice or their employing organisation’s circumstances;
  • Provide an understanding of how secondary care providers work within the health system to bring appropriate insight to discussions regarding service redesign, clinical pathways and system reform;
  • Inform commissioning decisions in the best interests of the BSW population within the parameters set by BSW and locality strategies and plans

The overarching role of the BSW CCG Governing Body is to ensure that the organisation has appropriate arrangements in place to exercise the CCG functions. All members of the Governing Body will share corporate responsibility, as part of a team to ensure that the CCG exercises its functions effectively, efficiently and economically and in accordance with the generally accepted principles of good governance and the BSW CCG constitution.

We provide services for a diverse community and will welcome applications from all sections of society regardless of disability, age, gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, race, religion or belief.

The appointed individuals will need to be available immediately upon appointment to participate in induction and occasional meetings of the newly forming BSW CCG Governing Body (in shadow form until the formal merger on 1 April 2020).
