Hywel Dda University Health Board

Hywel Dda University Health Board is one of seven acute Health Boards in Wales serving a population of circa 384,000 with over 9,500 staff. It is an integrated health body, ensuring the delivery of high quality primary, community, mental health and secondary care services, and it is responsible for the health and wellbeing of people across Carmarthenshire, Ceredigion and Pembrokeshire. It also provides a range of services for people living in south Gwynedd and Powys. Integrated health boards are a key first step in creating a world class NHS in Wales. Primary care and community services are delivered through: 55 GP practices, 51 Dental practices, 100 Community pharmacies, 52 Optometry premises, 8 Community hospitals, 11 Health centres.

The Health Board is fully committed to supporting employees to achieve an appropriate work/ life balance. We are continually developing ways in which to support greater flexibility. Job sharing and part time working is already widespread throughout the organisation. Training and education are central to the function of the Health Board, forming a core element of the Clinical Governance Strategy. Hywel Dda is the prescribed connection for approximately 800 doctors and has a dedicated medical appraisal and revalidation lead and manager who works across all Health Board sites. There is also a team of 52 trained appraisers to conduct appraisal meetings. Appraisal workshops and training sessions are regularly provided across the Health Board.

The Health Board has university status with strong links to Swansea, Cardiff and Aberystwyth University to promote research and development and multi-professional teaching. We recently appointed our first chair in Respiratory Medicine, with further appointments for the future. We are the first Health Board in Wales to appoint Bevan Fellows. This innovative programme aims to engage and capture the enthusiasm and commitment to our up and coming clinicians in addressing Prudent Healthcare in Wales.
