NHS Wales Employers
Established in February 2009, the strategic driving force behind the work of NHS Wales Employers is the principle that good quality patient care relies upon a strong, motivated and skilled workforce to deliver it.
Our work and general role is to support the strategic agenda of the NHS in Wales from an NHS employers’ perspective, recognising the central role of the workforce in facilitating service change and consequently ensuring that the NHS is a place where people want to work and an employer of choice.
