The Bristol North Somerset and South Gloucestershire (BNSSG) CCG have a membership of 80 GP practices, which serve a population of a million people. Our mission is to make healthcare better for everyone that lives in BNSSG. We will do this by putting people’s needs at the heart of our decision making and ensuring that the voice of local people shapes what we do as we seek to get the very best value from the resources we have available.

The values of our organisation are:

  • We act with integrity

  • We support each other

  • We embrace diversity

  • We work better together

  • We strive for excellence

  • We do the right thing

The successful applicant will join the CCG’s Modelling and Analytics team at an exciting time, leveraging the recently developed system-wide linked dataset in applying novel quantitative approaches to address a range of important questions across our healthcare system.

The post-holder will have a varied analytical workload, leading on a number of interesting projects which require the application of statistical and mathematical modelling and data science techniques. Examples could include demand forecasting, patient flow modelling and simulation, and population segmentation and risk stratification.

Note that experience within the NHS or wider health field is not required. Of most importance is a good grasp of applied modelling approaches underpinned by degree-level qualification(s) in a quantitative discipline. Experience of coding in statistical languages, especially in ‘R’, is strongly desirable. The role-holder should have an open and inquisitive mind, and be prepared to think innovatively and creatively.




We are committed to ensuring that disabled people are afforded equality of opportunity in all stages of the recruitment process and we guarantee an interview to candidates who declare they have a disability and meet the minimum criteria of the post
