Service Transformation

Service Transformation

Board Co-Chairs:
Phillip Kloer, Medical Director, Hywel Dda University Health Board  
Richard Evans, Medical Director, Swansea Bay University Health Board

The Service Transformation Programme is taking a whole system approach to implement new service models based on the needs of our population, with a different approach to delivering health and care services, across system and organisational boundaries. All projects are sponsored by Executive Directors in both Health Boards and have strong clinical and service leadership. The focus in 2019/2020 will be:

  • Finalising the work in progress to develop new regional service models for a number of fragile services to create more sustainable services;
  • Maximising the opportunities to streamline patient pathways and secure more effective local and regional service provision; and,
  • Improving the performance of current regional pathways.
