Wiltshire Health and Care is a partnership, focused solely on delivering improved community services in Wiltshire and enabling people to live independent and fulfilling lives for as long as possible. It is responsible for the delivery of adult community health services and formed from a partnership of the three NHS Foundation Trusts who serve Wiltshire.

When our organisation was established, we designed a programme of change which is being delivered through six key projects. We draw on the expertise of committed professionals, along with drive and the ambition to work in partnership with organisations across Wiltshire to care for our local population. We have a long term plan for services and know we can only achieve our aims by forming effective partnerships with GPs, primary care, social services, our acute partners, mental health services, voluntary sector organisations and engaging with the people of Wiltshire.

We are seeking a strategic leader with a track record of achievement at board level, someone who will develop strong relationships and collaborations with our many partner organisations and oversee the governance infrastructure required to monitor and deliver a high quality community health service.  A strategic thinker, you will have a ‘hands on’ approach, working with the small team to deliver this ambitious and innovative arrangement together with an understanding of the differences between governance and management. You must be able to demonstrate a good understanding and awareness of health and social care, a flair for innovation as well as the ability to balance risk. Preference will be given to candidates living or working in Wiltshire.
