The Welsh Government has opened its consultation with the public on proposals to re-align the Bridgend local authority boundary within the footprint of the Cwm Taf University Health board area.
This follows the publication of the White Paper in January 2017 Reforming Local Government: Resilient and Renewed which looked at ways of strengthening local government's ability to work together to meet the challenges it and other public services face across Wales.
In its response to the consultation on the White Paper earlier this year Cwm Taf UHB felt it would be prudent to consider re-alignment of health board boundaries, noting an historic and natural fit of the Bridgend area to Cwm Taf through existing patient flows and provision.
Whilst both Cwm Taf UHB and Abertawe Bro Morgannwg UHB will be consultees in the current process, both health boards have been involved in scoping the implications of any agreed change, without compromising the consultation process and outcome.
The Welsh Government’s consultation is now live on its website at the links below. The consultation ends on March 7th 2018 should you wish to submit your views or comments.
