We are so delighted to have been awarded the contract for adult community health services across Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire from April 2020 and to be working with fantastic staff across the area to build on the good work which is already taking place.
You may have already seen on other pages on our website that Sirona is about people; people who use our services, who work for us and our partners in the health and care system including those in the Third Sector.
We are about helping and supporting people to meet their individual goals, not fitting people to services – we know one size does not fit all.
The new contract is for 10 years and is worth over £100m a year. A key part of the specification for services is about transformation and working with people across BNSSG to ensure we can make a difference.
We are already providing these services in South Gloucestershire – services in Bristol are currently provided by Bristol Community Health CIC and in North Somerset by North Somerset Community Partnership.
Staff currently working in these services in Bristol and North Somerset will transfer to Sirona and we will have around 3000 staff in total.
Sirona is a Third Sector organisation – a social enterprise committed to adding value to the areas we serve. We are about listening, involving and learning from your expertise and experience, being inclusive and ensuring equal access to services.
We are looking forward to working with you on this exciting journey.
