Dear Candidate

Thank you for your interest in this exciting opportunity to join the leadership team of Cwm Taf Morgannwg University Health Board as we continue the development of our new organisation.  I hope you enjoy finding out more about us, and our dedication to work with our population to improve their health and well-being. 

The organisation was established in April 2019 and serves the populations of Bridgend, Merthyr Tydfil, and Rhondda Cynon Taf.  The successful establishment of the new University Health Board will be critical to improving the health outcomes of our population and we look forward to sharing best practice learning and ideas from our legacy organisations to ensure we provide a consistently high quality of service to all the people we serve.  We are now an organisation of 12,000 people, serving a population of 450,000 and we are a fully integrated health care commissioner and provider.

Our people are the life-blood not only of the University Health Board, but of the communities that we serve. We currently in the process of establishing a set of values and behaviours that create a positive environment for our new organisation and our people, and to enable us to focus on the development and delivery of high quality patient care and services.  We have an exciting opportunity to shape our new Integrated Healthcare Strategy that will be informed by engagement with our population. 

While our services have previously had a good reputation, we regret that serious and deep-rooted failings have recently been identified in our maternity services.  We recognise the impact this has had on our people and our patients and we are committed to making rapid improvement.  We are working to address the special measures that the Welsh Government has applied to our organisation to rebuild trust and confidence in these critical services, through stronger engagement with our populations and stakeholders.  As part of this we are committed to creating a learning and listening organisation with strong mechanisms that allow our staff to speak up and raise concerns about quality and safety.

This is a fantastic opportunity for an experienced board-level workforce and organisational development professional to join our highly experienced Board as we seek to establish the operating model and culture required to address our challenges, while looking forward to the opportunity to meet the current and future health and care needs of our population. 

The Executive Director of Workforce and Organisational Development will be a critical role as we continue to seek new service delivery models for our population and to develop an increasingly agile and flexible workforce.  At a time of significant transformation this will be a central role in our Board team.  We are seeking an ambitious, person-centred change agent, confident in engaging a diverse workforce, and in developing the organisation to create the culture and environment in which leaders at all levels can flourish. 

As there are only ten Health Boards across the whole of Wales, this role will also allow you national influence and leadership opportunities.  If you come to work in Cwm Taf Morgannwg you will be guaranteed a warm Welsh welcome.

I look forward to meeting you during the process.

Dr Sharon Hopkins
Interim Chief Executive
