HYWEL Dda University Health Board is inviting the public to attend its AGM at Haverfordwest’s Pembrokeshire College later this month.

The AGM takes place at 3.30pm in rooms L1.15/L1.17 on Thursday July 26.

The organisation’s annual report, including summary accounts and the annual quality statement, will be at the AGM.

Health Board Chair Bernardine Rees OBE said: “We look forward to this opportunity to share our reflections on the past year with our local population and to set our goals, aspirations and priorities for the year to come. I would urge those with an interest in local health care services to attend this meeting, or alternatively join our Siarad Iechyd/Talking Health membership scheme.

"Over the past year we have worked hard to address the challenges we continue to face, but we have also seen many achievements to be very proud of, and I personally thank each and every one of our staff for their tireless efforts, day in and day out, for the benefit of our patients.

“This coming year is one where we will continue our focus, not just on improving our financial position and strengthening our workforce, but also on ‘Our Big NHS Change’ proposals which aim to significantly improve our health and care services, making them safe, sustainable, accessible and kind for the future. We look forward to achieving that aim together with our staff, partners and local communities and becoming a population health organisation, firmly focused on patient-centred care."

Members of the public are welcome to attend. To ensure adequate provision can be made available, please advise the board secretary by e-mail to: joanne.wilson4@wales.nhs.uk, telephone 01267 239644.
