Working in Partnership

The Well-being of Future Generations (Wales) Act places a well-being duty on Public Services Boards (PSBs) to improve the economic, social, environmental and cultural well-being of its area by contributing to the achievement of the seven national well-being goals. In order to do so, a PSB must, while acting in accordance with the sustainable development principle.

Working in Partnership with Public Services Boards

Cardiff and Vale University Health Board is a statutory member of the Public Services Boards (PSBs) in Cardiff and the Vale of Glamorgan. The purpose of PSBs is to ensure that member bodies work collaboratively to improve the economic, social, environmental and cultural well-being of their local populations and contribute to the achievement of the seven wellbeing goals as set out in the Wellbeing of Future Generations Act (Wales) 2015.

Partners have committed to working across organisational boundaries to agree actions to achieve better outcomes and improve well-being for local citizens, acting in accordance with the sustainable development principle and in a manner which seeks to ensure that the needs of the present are met without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.

We work with our PSB partners on the development of statutory Wellbeing Assessments and Wellbeing Plans, which set out the PSBs’ commitments to improve local well-being today and for future generations. The PSBs recognise the need to work closely with the Regional Partnership Board to ensure that there is alignment of objectives and actions, along with clear accountability arrangements for taking lead responsibility on issues.

Our Chair and Executive Team are directly involved in the work of the PSBs which are providing real opportunities to think more about the long term, work better with local people, look to prevent problems and take a more joined-up approach to our work.
