A new chief officer has been appointed for Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire clinical commissioning groups (CCGs).

The three CCGs are working to create a sustainability and transformation plan which the Government hopes will make the NHS sustainable.

Julia Ross has been appointed as the new chief officer for the CCGs and she will lead upcoming changes.

She is currently the chief executive of North West Surrey CCG.

She said: “I am delighted to be joining the BNSSG CCGs at a key point in their development as they move towards a shared commissioning approach for the local area.

“BNSSG has a vibrant and dynamic health and care system and I look forward to working with local health and care leaders, patients and the public to deliver the high-quality, sustainable services that local people need, both now and in the future.”

The chair of North Somerset’s CCG, Kathy Headdon, added: “Julia will bring experience and skills that will be of great benefit to North Somerset CCG and the wider system in addressing the difficult challenges we face. I am sure that North Somerset CCG staff and partners will join me in welcoming Julia.”
