Job Overview:

Somerset NHS Foundation Trust successfully won the bid to lead a new integrated sexual health service across Somerset commencing 1st April 2016. This marked the beginning of a new and exciting era for sexual health services in Somerset.

As a foundation trust we benefit from the support of and dedication of our volunteers, our Council of Governors, our Leagues of Friends, charities, and partners – and we thank them for their contribution.

The Somerset-Wide Integrated Sexual Health (SWISH) Service brings together what was the Contraceptive and Sexual Health Service (CASH) and Genito-Urinary Medicine (GUM) in Somerset. SWISH offers free confidential testing and treatment for all sexually transmitted infections, including HIV, and offers a full range of contraception and a Psychosexual Medicine Service, from venues across the county. It is open to all ages including under 16's.

The Trust uses an Electronic Patient Record [RiO] for community, mental health, and social care. The system is now operational throughout the Trust and the electronic record is the prime record of clinical activity. SWISH uses Idox Lillie.


Somerset is a largely rural county of 3452 km2 with a GP registered population of approximately 560,000. Whilst tourism and agriculture are important, the county has several industrial concerns and Army and Naval bases.

It is a picturesque county with a long northern coastline from Burnham in the East to near Lynmouth in the West. Inland has a wide range of attractive scenery with the Mendip, Quantock & Blackdown Hills and the grandeur of Exmoor contrasting with the flat wetlands and peat areas of the Somerset Levels.

The county town is Taunton, a popular ‘up and coming’ conurbation, which has an estimated population of 88,000 and is primarily an administrative centre and market town. The other main towns are Bridgwater in the Northwest and Yeovil in the East of the county. Bristol and Exeter are both within easy reach by road and there is a fast train service to London from Castle Cary and Taunton.


Essential Criteria:

  • MRCP or equivalent registration.
  • Full GMC registration.
  • Entry on the GMC specialist register
  • Minimum of 6 months NHS experience is required
  • Current ALS certificate
