The Social Services and Wellbeing Act Wales (2014) identified the statutory need for regions to create Regional Partnership Boards (RPBs) to oversee integrated strategic approaches to deliver integrated Health and Social Care services. Since this time, Welsh Government have more recently published “A Healthier Wales: our Plan for Health and Social Care” which emphasises the need to prevent illness by supporting people to manage their own health and wellbeing and on enabling people to live independently for as long as they can.
“Healthier Wales” also confirmed the importance of Regional Partnership working to develop new models of integrated Health and Social Care that are innovative and addresses regional priorities. RPBs are expected to provide a strong oversight and coordinating role as highlighted by the expectations of the national Transformation programme and the need for RPBs to have lead responsibility on the development, implementation and achievement of individual bids.
Such national expectations clearly stresses the critical role of Regional Partnership Boards in delivering the expected transformation of Health and Social Care delivery so that services become better coordinated and seamless.
The Cwm Taf Morgannwg Regional Partnership Board bring together health, social services, housing, the third sector and other partners taking forward the effective delivery of integrated services in wales. The Cwm Taf Morgannwg Regional Commissioning Unit works on behalf of the Regional Partnership Board.
