In order to meet the evolving healthcare needs of our population across Cardiff and the Vale and beyond, we believe a number of our clinical services could be delivered differently.
This will allow us to provide the best possible care both at our hospital sites and in the community. The Shaping Our Future Clinical Services programme will pull together the transformation and development of our clinical model and seek to find out what matters to you.

Thank you for your interest in the Shaping our Future Clinical Services programme. This engagement period has now ended. We offer our thanks to everyone who has taken part.

We will now:

    • Share the responses received with the South Glamorgan Community Health Council (CHC).
    • Consider the responses received and write a report summarising the feedback and recommending a way forward.
    • Liaise with the CHC to consider the outcome of the engagement exercise and next steps.
    • Publicise the outcome of the engagement exercise and confirm next steps in our programme of transforming clinical services.

Cardiff and Vale University Health Board provides local healthcare services for people in Cardiff and the Vale of Glamorgan and is the main provider of specialist services for the people of south Wales and for some services, the whole of Wales and the wider UK. 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 With a growing and ageing population, staff shortages and outdated hospital buildings, we must change the way we deliver care if we want to provide high quality, safe and sustainable care for the future.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.

Please read our Shaping Our Future Clinical Services brochure to learn more about our proposed plans and how these may impact you.
We would then like you to participate in our survey and play your part.
