Our chief executive Sue Evans has been announced as one of the 16 members appointed to the National Transformation Board.

The announcement was made yesterday by Vaughan Gething, the Cabinet Secretary for Health and Social Services.

The board will be responsible for supporting Andrew Goodall, the Director General of Health and Social Services, in leading the implementation of 'A Healthier Wales: Our Plan for Health and Social Care'.

The Welsh Government plan, which was published on 11 June 2018, sets out how it aims to transform social care and health in Wales by creating a seamless, whole system approach to improve the health and well-being of the people of Wales.

The board consists of 16 members and includes representatives from across the health, social care, housing, local government and voluntary sectors in Wales.

Sue Evans said: “I’m delighted to join the National Transformation Board to look at how we can make the ambitious goals set out in 'A Healthier Wales' a reality.

“We are already working with our partners in health and early years to reform health, social care and early years qualifications in Wales to make sure the workforce has the tools it needs to provide care and support that meets people’s needs.

“I am looking forward to continuing to work closely with all our partners to achieve the plan’s long-term future vision of a seamless, whole system approach to social care, health and well-being.”
