Cwm Taf Morgannwg University Health Board provides primary, community, hospital and mental health services to the 450,000 people living in three County Boroughs: Bridgend, Merthyr Tydfil and Rhondda Cynon Taf.

At Cwm Taf Morgannwg providing great health care to our community is our number one priority. Our 65 – 84 and 85+ age groups are projected to have the largest increase by 2036, when an estimated one in four people in Wales will be aged 65 and over. These projections will have significant implications for the way in which we design and provide our increasingly integrated health and social care services, so that we can help the people living in our communities to live long and healthy lives, free from the limiting effects of multiple chronic conditions.

At Cwm Taf Morgannwg we believe in innovation to make improvements to clinical care. We are especially proud of our Academic Centre in Merthyr Tydfil, which is helping to train future doctors in community medicine.

Our values and behaviours

On October 15, 2020, World Values Day, Cwm Taf Morgannwg University Health Board launched its new organisational values and behaviours.

They exist to make a positive difference to our employees, as well as to our patients and service users across the diverse communities we serve.

Through surveys and a series of listening and co-creation workshops to find out what was most important to everyone, the Health Board set out to co-create new values and behaviours for the organisation. More than 6,500 pieces of feedback were captured in total.

With them now launched, our organisational focus is firmly on embedding these new values and behaviours into everyday practice at Cwm Taf Morgannwg.

By all Cwm Taf Morgannwg employees working to one definitive set of values and behaviours for our organisation, these values will:

  • support us to be at our best by working as one team to bring our values to life, both within our internal workforce and for our communities, through our delivery of patient care and services;
  • help inform the decisions we make as a Health Board;
  • they will shape employee experience; and most importantly
  • will improve service user, patient care and outcomes for our local populations and our communities.

Our Health Board is committed to building a culture it feels proud of, with recognisable values at its core that can be felt and understood by every person who comes into contact with them.

By living up to our new organisational values and behaviours at every opportunity, we can achieve these three key things:
