This is an exciting post, jointly funded by the CCG and Dorset County Council that will focus upon the implementation of transformation projects within the West of Dorset. You will be pivotal in ensuring projects are planned, co-ordinated and their benefits are clearly defined. You will play a key role in driving forward project implementations at pace, working with colleagues from multiple organisations to ensure any barriers to progress are swiftly overcome. A true team player, you will enjoy the challenge of adapting your approach to ensure projects remain on track. In order to be successful in this position, you will need to be resilient and have the ability to easily flex your approach in a changing environment.

Our Mission

Using our clinical understanding, we strive to lead continuous improvements to health and care services in Dorset. Our key mission is to support people in Dorset to lead healthier lives, for longer.

This mission sets out our ultimate purpose. It defines what we must aim to achieve every day, through every decision and every interaction we have as an organisation. It also incorporates our vision statement. Our mission statement is explained as follows:

  • 'Supporting people' reflects our role of commissioning services for those who fall ill and in preventing illness in the first place. It also recognises the need for us to support people to manage their own health and to work with them to do this successfully.
  • We have a duty of care for all people while they are 'in Dorset' - not just Dorset residents.
  • 'Healthier lives' is the ultimate outcome we are aiming for. It reflects a need to prevent illness (e.g. through education), as well as recognising the need to provide timely services for everyone.

As a clinical commissioning group we have a responsibility as leaders within the health economy. Our unique position as clinicians also allows us to view things differently.

We already have an excellent health service in Dorset but, excellent services can still, and must, be improved to reflect a continually changing economy and society. By using our clinical understanding and different perspective we can drive continuous improvements, not just in health care but across all services within Dorset.
