Virgin Care begins new role in Bath & North East Somerset

Virgin Care is now the prime provider of community health and care services in Bath and North East Somerset.

Services were safely transferred from Sirona care & health at one minute past midnight on Saturday 1 April as planned.

What happens next?

There won’t be any major changes to how services run over the first 100 days as Virgin Care focus on induction events and training for colleagues who have transferred, working with them to refine the future plans for their services.

Over the coming years, the CCG and the Council have commissioned Virgin Care to deliver more joined-up services that support people to improve their overall health and wellbeing rather than simply treating their conditions.

This will include the gradual introduction of new technology to reduce time-consuming paperwork and provide people with a single record for all the health and care services they use.
