Senior Leadership

Introduction to Senior Leadership Roles

Our vision is to realise the great potential of our organisation by empowering our skilled and caring staff to deliver high-quality, financially sustainable services in state-of-the-art facilities. Clinical outcomes will be excellent and with a spirit of openness and candour, we will ensure an outstanding experience for our patients. 

In our most recent CQC inspection, our Trust was rated as “Good”, a major benchmark of high quality and effective services. Crucially, the Trust’s approach to caring for patients was rated Outstanding, as was the way our organisation is led. Of the 37 domains inspected on this occasion, which make up the Trust’s overall rating, 31 were either rated as Good or Outstanding. 

We are proud of our leaders, working in a wide range of roles and specialties to ensure we deliver outstanding patient care across our Trust. At North Bristol NHS Trust, we value all people as individuals. We are an anti-discriminatory organisation and are committed to building a team that represents a variety of backgrounds, perspectives and skills. We strive to be truly inclusive.

We also work closely with partner organisations across Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire (BNSSG) as part of the Healthier Together BNSSG Integrated Care Board (ICB) to ensure we realise the opportunities which come from working across the wider health and care system.
