Monitoring the quality and safety of our patient care

Hywel Dda University Health Board has to make sure that the care given to you is safe.  This is a top priority of the Board and we also want to be as transparent as we can be by sharing with you the main issues which need improvement, examples of high quality services and what information we use to monitor services.

Every year the University Health Board publishes its Annual Quality Statement which describes what has been achieved over the previous year and what needs to be improved for the following year. Last year’s Annual Quality Statement is available online below.

The Health Board has also monitored a range of measures on a regular basis, which is updated and reviewed through our Quality and Safety Committee to provide assurance to our Board on your safety. This basket of measures is continually being revised and updated as appropriate and compared with other Health Board’s across Wales.

The newly published set of measures are available below.
