The UPB will monitor progress against the plans developed by the domain leads and ensure that the UHB is meeting the criteria to maintain its University status against which it will be judged by Welsh Government
The UPB will assess the current position of the UHB, identify gaps and opportunities, and ensure links are made to maximise the effectiveness of developments to improve the health of its population and the quality and effectiveness of its services (including those delivered jointly with partners).
Issues of relevance to the UHB will include rurality, frailty, the Mid-Wales Review (as Hywel Dda University Health Board is the Health Board lead for the Mid Wales Healthcare Collaborative), links with partners and the possibility of ‘natural trials’, legislation and work with related initiatives, such as Health and Care Research Wales.
