You could be the individual Sirona care & health is looking for to lead the organisation when founding Chairman Simon Knighton stands down at the end of March.

Simon Knighton, Chairman, said: “It has been a privilege to Chair the Board of Sirona for the past 10 years. I have been honoured to work alongside health and care professionals and colleagues who put people – staff and those who use services – at the forefront of their work, and go above and beyond daily. This position truly provides endless satisfaction and pride.

“My role has enabled me and colleagues to work with partners to continue to transform health and care services and I am proud to have been involved with Sirona since its inception.

“This is an organisation where voices are heard and valued. While there will be ongoing challenges in the health and care sector, I firmly believe Sirona’s Board and staff will continue with their professional and dedicated attitudes to continue offering the best care and services to our local communities.”

“The Chair of Board is an exciting and challenging role, offering someone the opportunity to help lead change at Sirona and work with partners in our health and care system to deliver services to our local communities of the same standard we would expect for ourselves and those we care about.

“In April 2020 we became the single provider of community healthcare services across Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire, making us the biggest community based health and care organisation in England.

“This is an exciting new chapter, one that requires strong leadership. We have ambitious plans working with our colleagues across the system, in particular in Primary Care and the Voluntary Sector to transform community services. Our future Chair will need to be capable of leading a highly experienced and dedicated Board of Non-Executive and Executive Directors, dedicated to cause and overseeing our delivery of these plans.”

Sirona was founded in 2011 as a not-for-profit organisation providing NHS and Local Authority funded adult and children’s services across Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire as well as Community Equipment and Assistive Technology Services in Bath and North East Somerset. It does not have stakeholders with any surplus re-invested into services.
