Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) Advisory Group

The Health Board have established a BAME Advisory Group in recognition that COVID has disproportionately affected our BAME staff. 

This advisory group will report to Board, via Maria Battle, Chair of Hywel Dda University Health Board, to ensure a stronger voice and involvement within our organisation for BAME staff.

The group includes a range of staff representatives as well as officers from the Workforce and Organisational Development Team, Diversity and Inclusion Team and Chaplaincy Team. Dr Baba Gana and Dr Hashim Samir are joint vice-Chairs of the group.

For more information about the work of the group please contact the Strategic Partnerships, Diversity and Inclusion by emailing
