It is a time of major change in both the NHS and in Gloucestershire. 

We’re on the cusp of a ground breaking opportunity to join up mental and physical health services for our local communities. We are a committed to finding a dynamic and visionary leader to inspire and champion the transformation to create a truly integrated service. 

Both Trusts have carefully considered our respective strategic priorities we have jointly concluded that there is significant strategic alignment, to the extent that a “blended offer” through a single organisation would best support both of our future ambitions and accelerate local Sustainability and Transformation Partnership (STP) plans.

We have jointly set out the proposed principles and process which will support the coming together of our two successful organisations. In this endeavour, we are determined that the process maintains our focus on in-year performance and delivery as well as ensuring appropriate and effective governance and leadership in both Trusts.

We have agreed and committed to a timeline which we are confident will support our shared ambitions, provide clarity of leadership, and ensure stability of delivery within both organisations. Towards this end, we are now seeking to recruit an exceptional Joint CEO for both organisations. 

To deliver business as usual alongside our ambitious integration project, this joint role will require a highly skilled, resilient and experienced NHS senior leader. Bringing an extensive track record of providing strong and creative strategic leadership, ideally from a background combining physical and mental health and learning disability services, you will understand the key issues and challenges facing NHS organisations.  With well-honed political skills you will have the ability to work collaboratively inside and outside both organisations and in partnership with other agencies.  

This is a genuine opportunity, and we’re determined to search the country to find the right person who is driven by their passion to improve mental and physical health services for the communities that we serve.
