Councillor Jane Gebbie said:

“I am delighted to be appointed Chair of Cwm Taf Morgannwg Regional Partnership Board. As a long-standing Trade Union member and social activist, I strongly believe in the power of unity to drive forward positive and tangible changes.

“Health and social care services are going through a seriously difficult time- affecting every single one of us in one way or another. We also know from our Population Needs Assessment that there are a number of barriers and challenges impacting people’s health and wellbeing. These cannot be solved alone.

“As Chair I pledge to ensure we are held accountable as a partnership. We know from speaking with our communities how important information and updates are, and we will be transparent about how people can get involved with our work, and the progress we are making.

“I am confident that by working with and listening to our communities we can improve services to create a healthier and happier future for our residents.”
