Company Description

Swansea Bay University Health Board (SBUHB) (WelshBwrdd lechyd Prifysgol Bae Abertawe) is the local health board of NHS Wales for Swansea and Neath Port Talbot, in the south-west of Wales. Established as Abertawe Bro Morgannwg University Health Board (ABMUHB) in 2009, it was renamed and had its boundaries altered on 1 April 2019.[1] In February 2019 it was decided to rename it Swansea Bay University Health Board and to alter the boundary with the Cwm Taf University Health Board (now Cwm Taf Morgannwg University Health Board).

The board’s predecessor, the Abertawe Bro Morgannwg University Health Board was formally created on 1 October 2009 when the Abertawe Bro Morgannwg University NHS Trust formally merged with the local health boards of Swansea, Neath Port Talbot and Bridgend. The headquarters for Abertawe Bro Morgannwg University NHS Trust (and the existing health board) is located in Baglan BayPort Talbot and the first Chief Executive was Paul Williams. The Abertawe Bro Morgannwg University NHS Trust was in turn formed on 1 April 2008 from the merger of Swansea NHS Trust and Bro Morgannwg NHS Trust. From 1 April 2019, the Abertawe Bro Morgannwg University Health Board was renamed to the Swansea Bay University Health Board following exchanges of authority with the neighbouring Cwm Taf University Health Board (renamed to the Cwm Taf Morgannwg University Health Board), which took over the control of providing health services in Bridgend from the Abertawe Bro Morgannwg University Health Board.

SBUHB serves 390,000 people and employs 12,500 staff. The health board has a budget of £1 billion, and is a designated university local health board linked to Swansea University. Training centres are located at Singleton HospitalMorriston Hospital and Phillips Parade Children’s Orthopaedic Clinic.

On October 22, 2020, it was announced that Mark Hackett would take over as Chief Executive from the retiring Tracy Myhill. The appointment is effective as of 1 January 2021.
