Job Type

The leaders of all of Devon's NHS and local authorities have been developing and delivering an ambitious sustainability and transformation partnership over the past 18 months. Its aim is to improve how our health and care system better supports the health and well-being needs of the county’s population.   

Historic financial problems are being eradicated, performance is already improving and, above all, there is an increased focus on preventing ill health and on promoting independence through the provision of more joined up services closer to people’s homes.

Devon is now committed to becoming an Accountable Care System. Our ambition is to add value in how we work for our population by addressing the challenges facing the NHS and social care through an integrated, collaborative system of care. 

The new Chief Executive will take on responsibility for developing and leading the new Accountable Care System in Devon, providing leadership to the sustainability and transformation partnership and becoming accountable officer for the two CCGs, which include all primary care commissioning to Devon, as well as some specialist commissioning.

The new Chief Executive will continue our mission to build strong partnerships that will enable and drive further integration.  The role thus embraces a huge change agenda, operating in an environment where the emphasis is on coaching, guiding and collaborating with partners, and exerting influence where required.

The successful candidate will need to be a visionary leader with established credentials as a chief executive, gained in a complex, regulated environment, and familiar with health care systems.  The ability to operate in a complex governance structure, manage an array of stakeholders, and drive for tangible outcomes, will be important characteristics.

This role represents an excellent opportunity to take a step forward in health and social care provision and show the way for the future.
