The B&NES, Swindon and Wiltshire (BSW) plan is being led by James Scott, Chief Executive of Royal United Hospital in Bath, a position he has held since 2007. James oversees and coordinates a team drawn from the leaders of each of the health and social care organisations included in our STP ‘footprint’ area. During this time, James is continuing with his responsibilities as CEO of the RUH.
The BSW plan brings together our three hospitals (Royal United Hospital, Great Western Hospital and Salisbury Foundation Trust), the three Clinical Commissioning Groups; B&NES, Swindon and Wiltshire Councils, South West Ambulance Service and Avon and Wiltshire Mental Health Partnership Trust. The providers of our community services – Wiltshire Health and Care, Seqol and Sirona and the Wessex Local Medical Committee (representing GPs from across the BSW area) complete our organisational grouping.
Working together to cover a combined population size of approximately one million people, the BSW grouping will bid for and receive a transformation fund from 2017/18 onwards, which will be used to pay for health and social care services for people living in our area.
