The Trust provides acute healthcare services at Great Western Hospital (GWH) to approximately 350,000 people in Swindon and North Wiltshire and to parts of Gloucestershire, Oxfordshire and West Berkshire, as well as community services across Swindon in various settings and people’s homes. We remain ambitions and are investing significantly in the development of our estate, our service portfolio and importantly, in the technology that supports the delivery of clinical care.

The coming years will see the Trust respond to a wide range of challenges by driving a programme of transformation that will radically reshape how GWH operates as an organisation and how patients access the care that we provide.

The Candidate
