Refreshing our strategy

Cardiff and Vale University Health Board Logo

The journey so far...

Shaping Our Future Wellbeing, our existing ten-year strategy, was launched back in 2015, following its development with colleagues, stakeholders and the public.

The strategy provides context to everything we do and at its heart sets out to address the stark health inequities that exist across the communities we serve, and to provide the very best health care services. We work with a wider range of partners who are critical to enabling our ambitions. Our strategy is fundamental in supporting the delivery of our mission ‘caring for people and keeping people well’.

We are fast approaching the end of our Shaping Our Future Wellbeing strategy. Additionally, the Health Board is under significant strain, intensified by the impacts of the pandemic. Now is a critical period as we seek to address both immediate and upcoming challenges.

At Cardiff and  Vale University Health Board, we provide a full spectrum of services to our local population, as well as being the main provider of specialist services in our region. We face a number of challenges in how we deliver health services, now and for the future.

We have delivered many of the actions we set out in Shaping Our Future Wellbeing, but we need to take stock of what has changed, review our priorities and set key actions we need to take over the next 10 years to deliver the required improvement and transformation.

In January and February 2023, we are engaging with colleagues across the organisation, as well as some of our key stakeholders, to begin the development of our refreshed strategy. We will be hosting many workshops and events to gather as much feedback as possible.

We urge colleagues to take part in these sessions and to provide feedback so we can ensure that all of our team, across all disciplines, play a part in what our priorities and ambitions for the next ten years look like.

Health Board colleagues and key stakeholders are invited to take part in engagement sessions which will be promoted internally on SharePoint. Please complete the survey during or after the sessions, this will allow us to ensure your feedback informs our refreshed strategy. You may also choose to complete the survey without attending a session, however, you may miss out on additional background information and context which may be
beneficial.

Please note, public engagement sessions will begin around Spring 2023.

Find out more about upcoming staff strategy refresh workshops on SharePoint.
