Bath and North East Somerset, Swindon and Wiltshire Together Integrated Care System (BSW ICS) has appointed Paul Doyle as Elective Transformation Director.
Paul will drive forwards BSW ICS’s work to improve elective care and will develop an elective care strategy, lead on demand and capacity planning for BSW elective services and develop a network delivery model across the BSW area for elective services.
Elective Care is generally care that is planned in advance. It involves specialist clinical care or surgery, generally following a referral from a GP or community health professional.
Paul joins BSW ICB from NHS England where he held the position of National Programme Director for Elective Recovery.
Prior to joining NHSE, Paul worked for Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust where he held a number of roles including North West London Programme Director for Specialist Services Consolidation, Deputy Director of Transformation and Deputy CFO. Paul joined Imperial in 2016.
Before joining the NHS Paul spent 15 years in the Civil Service, primarily in HM Treasury, in a number of roles including Deputy Director for Health, and leading the Treasury and Government’s analytical work to make the case for Scotland remaining part of the UK in the run up to the 2014 referendum.
Paul was awarded an OBE for services to economic analysis and policy making in the 2015 Queens Birthday Honours.
Sue Harriman, Chief Executive of Bath and North East Somerset, Swindon and Wiltshire Together Integrated Care System said:
“We are delighted that Paul will be joining us at the Bath and North East Somerset, Swindon and Wiltshire Together Integrated Care System where he will take a lead role in improving our position on elective care and build on the already well developed joined-up work of acute providers across the BSW system.”
Cara Charles-Barks, Chief Executive of the Royal United Hospitals Bath NHS Foundation Trust and Senior Responsible Officer for Elective Care at Bath and North East Somerset, Swindon and Wiltshire Integrated Care Board said:
“The BSW Together Integrated Care System has continued to make considerable progress in reducing waiting times for elective care over recent month and Paul’s appointment will allow us to build on this momentum as we develop our elective care strategy and continue to work collaboratively and closely to improve outcomes for people across our local area.”
