Membership of the Cardiff and Vale of Glamorgan Regional Partnership Board

Cllr Ash Lister

Charles Janczewski

Vice Chair of the Cardiff and Vale University Health Board (Chair of the Regional Partnership Board)

The main areas of focus for my role with the Health Board is to lead the Board towards providing the best possible health care services for the population we serve. This includes:

· the successful development and implementation of our long term strategy

· ensuring that the Board delivers strong performance against our operational delivery requirements with particular focus on quality of service and patient safety

· continually developing the right culture across the organisation including a very strong emphasis on staff wellbeing, equality and inclusion

· making sure that our underpinning governance arrangements are fit for purpose.

A major benefit of the Regional Partnership Board from my point of view, has been the ability to work very closely with all partner organisations to improve the range of services we provide to our population within Cardiff & the Vale of Glamorgan. Our very effective partnership working has allowed us to deliver creative and innovative services that would have been far more difficult for individual organisations to achieve in isolation. Co-production has been a major benefit and has been particularly beneficial during this recent period of unprecedented challenge that the Covid-19 pandemic has presented. The work of the RPB has highlighted the contributions of all of our staff and key workers who continue to provide amazing public service and compassionate care for members of our communities.”
