Work of the Cwm Taf Public Services Board

The aims of the Public Services Board (PSB) are to:

Improve the quality of life and outcomes for citizens of the Cwm Taf areas of Rhondda Cynon Taf and Merthyr Tydfil.

Provide proactive, collective leadership in tackling the most challenging issues facing public services in the planning, commissioning and delivery of services to the citizens of Cwm Taf.

Stimulate dialogue, co-ordination and co-operation between local, regional and national public sector organisations to improve and integrate service delivery for the citizen.

Remove “blockages” or other obstacles by minimising bureaucracy and the preventative effectiveness of organisational boundaries.

Celebrate success in the delivery of services for citizens of Cwm Taf.

Consider ‘best value’ and prudency in the expenditure of public service resources and to explore areas where collaborations/ integration would provide greater efficiencies and improved outcomes; and involve citizens in influencing how we deliver public services.

The work of Cwm Taf Public Services Board will be directed by its Well-being Plan once this is finalised in 2018. In order to write this Plan, the PSB carried out a Well-being Assessment and Population Assessment. The findings of these assessments have informed our draft well-being objectives.

In addition, the PSB also has workstreams. The focus of these workstreams was agreed by the board at its meeting in May 2016.
