Lesley Griffiths said:

“The Health Service in Wales faces a range of challenges including a rising elderly population, health inequalities, more people with chronic conditions, medical staffing pressures and some specialist services being spread too thinly.

“The experience of these board members will help us as we implement the changes necessary to meet those challenges, as outlined in our five-year vision for the NHS in Wales, Together for Health.”

Local Health Boards are responsible for planning, designing, developing and securing the delivery of primary, community, in-hospital care services, and where appropriate specialised services for the citizens in their respective areas to meet identified local needs within the national policy and standards framework set out by the Minister.

NHS Trusts are self-governing units within the NHS, responsible for the ownership and management of hospitals or other establishments or facilities vested in them. They are also responsible for carrying out the individual functions set out in their Establishment Order.

The appointments were made in accordance with the Commissioner for Public Appointments Code of Practice.

All appointments are made on merit and political activity plays no part in the selection process. However, in accordance with the original Nolan recommendations, there is a requirement for appointees’ political activity (if any declared) to be made public.
