The NHS Wales Executive is a new, national support function, operational from 1 April, 2023.
Our key purpose is to:
Drive improvements in the quality and safety of care - resulting in better and more equitable outcomes, access and patient experience, reduced variation, and improvements in population health.
The NHS Executive will provide strong leadership and strategic direction – enabling, supporting and directing NHS Wales to transform clinical services in line with national priorities and standards.
We will do this through:
The NHS Executive is not a new organisation: rather we are a hybrid function bringing together:
Improvement Cymru will retain their name and brand for now. From 1 April 2023, the Improvement Cymru brand will be used alongside the NHS Wales Executive brand where relevant.
The NHS Wales Executive combines a wealth of NHS and Civil Service experience.
By working together, we will develop a culture of inclusion where people are supported to maximise their potential through equity and opportunity.
There will be a carefully managed transition from individual bodies into one, shared corporate vision to embed a culture of quality, innovation and digital expertise.
The goal is to achieve an inclusive and respectful workforce culture where staff feel valued and have a shared sense of identity and belonging.
