Dyfed Edwards appointed as Health Board Chair

Dyfed Edwards has been appointed as the Chair of Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board.

Dyfed, who has been in post as interim Chair since February 2023, was formally appointed to the post by the Health Minister on Tuesday 30th January 2024.

Following the announcement, Dyfed said: It is an honour to be given this opportunity and I will continue to give everything to the job and to serve the Health Board and the people of north Wales.

“Health, and the health and care system touches all our lives at different times and is a key part of the social fabric that sustains our communities in North Wales. We know that the Health Board has been underperforming and falling short in terms of delivering world-class public services for our communities but in the last year, I have met many incredible staff and seen some fantastic services. I feel privileged to be permanently joining the 19,000 strong team at Betsi and I know that they share mine and the Board’s ambition to make lasting improvements in the health and wellbeing of population of North Wales and in the provision of their healthcare services.

“We are starting to see some good progress and I am looking forward to continuing the journey to building a more effective organisation.”

Dyfed, who has significant leadership experience in the public sector, including the NHS, will take on the role of Chair for a period of four years.
