The Hywel Dda University Health Board is made up of Executive Directors who are employees of the University Health Board, and Independent Board Members (IMs) who are appointed to the Board by the Minister for Health and Social Services via an open and competitive public appointments process.
The Board members are from a range of backgrounds, disciplines and areas of expertise providing leadership and direction to the organisation. The Board is responsible for the Health Board’s overall system of governance and control, which includes robust risk management, and therefore must seek and be provided with assurance on the effectiveness of the systems and processes in place for meeting the Health Board’s strategic and planning objectives.
The Board has a key role in ensuring that the Health Board has good governance arrangements in place and is open and transparent in the way that it works. The Board meets on a bi-monthly basis at a minimum, in public session. It is supported in the decision-making process by a structure of Committee and Advisory Groups. Dates and venues for the public meetings, and associated agendas, papers and minutes can be accessed below.
The individual Committee agenda, papers and minutes can be found on the Board Committees web page.
