On 1 April 2019 Cwm Taf University Health Board changed its name to Cwm Taf Morgannwg University Health Board (UHB) as it took responsibility for providing healthcare services for the people in the Bridgend County Borough area.
Cwm Taf Morgannwg UHB now 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.
About our population
The resident population of Bridgend, Merthyr Tydfil and Rhondda Cynon Taf is estimated to be 450,000 (StatsWales 2016).
Our 65 to 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 health (and increasingly integrated health & social care) services. With an increasing population and especially an increasing older population it is even more important that we support our the people living in our communities to live long and healthy lives, free from the limiting effects of multiple chronic conditions.
Ideally situated between Wales’ capital city, Cardiff to the South, the coastal town, Porthcawl to the West and the stunning scenery in the Brecon Beacons National Park to the North, we operate within a vibrant community, rich with history and heritage.
With almost 12,000 staff our workforce is the life-blood not only of the University Health Board, but also many of the communities that we serve. We take our role as one of the largest employers in the area very seriously which is evident in our wide-ranging partnership working, dedication to our corporate social responsibilities and the importance we place on building relationships with our staff and community.
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.
If you come to work in Cwm Taf Morgannwg you will be guaranteed a warm Welsh welcome; opportunities for professional development and a clinical environment that innovates to improve.
