Healthcare professionals forum

The Healthcare Professionals Forum (HPF) has been established as an Advisory Group of the Hywel Dda University Local Health Board (the Health Board) and constituted from December 2010.

As an Advisory Group to Hywel Dda University Health Board, the purpose of the Healthcare Professionals Forum (hereafter referred to as “the Forum”), is to provide advice to the Board on all professional and clinical issues it considers appropriate. Its role does not include consideration of professional terms and conditions of service.

As an Advisory Group to the Board, the Forum’s role is to:

  • provide a balanced, multi-disciplinary view of professional issues to advise the Board on local strategy and delivery.
  • facilitate engagement and debate amongst the wide range of clinical interests within the Health Board’s area of activity, with the aim of reaching and presenting a cohesive and balanced professional perspective to inform the Health Board’s decision making; and
  • link in with existing internal clinical engagement structures.

The Health Board may specifically request advice and feedback from the Forum on any aspect of its business, and the Forum may also offer advice and feedback even if not specifically requested by the Health Board.

The Forum may provide advice to the Board:

  • at Board meetings, through the Forum Chair’s participation as Associate Member;
  • in written advice; and
  • in any other form specified by the Board.
