We are also a major teaching and research organisation and play a significant role in the Welsh economy. We are very proud of the role that we play within the NHS. As one of the largest and most complex NHS organisations in the UK, we face unique challenges in the way we develop our services, our staff and our buildings to deliver on our ambitions for the future.
There are a number of challenges facing our modern NHS. With a growing and ageing population, staff shortages and outdated hospital buildings, we must change the way we deliver care if we want to provide high quality, safe and sustainable care for the future. More recently, the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic has placed substantial pressure on our services and significantly increased demand across the NHS. Throughout the pandemic we have seen the best of our NHS, our staff have risen to the challenge to provide the best care to our patients despite demands. It has also required some practical changes to the way we treat our patients and has provided us with opportunities to accelerate some service improvements.

We want to hear what you think about the ideas set out in the Shaping Our Future Clinical Services brochure. We are working closely with the South Glamorgan Community Health Council (CHC) and other partner organisations to make sure as many people as possible have the opportunity to learn about this programme and share their views.
At this stage, it is important that we hear your thoughts and opinions as we begin the development of our plans – this will help us to shape our thinking.
This public engagement opportunity is open until XXX.
