WPF Membership, Meetings and Documentation

Welsh Partnership Forum

The WPF membership comprises representation from each of the constituent parties - Welsh Government, NHS Wales's employers and trade unions/professional organisations as represented on the NHS Staff Council. - The constituent organisations are responsible for agreeing the nominations to the WPF and in so doing ensure that participants reflect the diverse nature of the NHS Wales.

The WPF will have 3 Co-Chairs, the Chief Executive for NHS Wales supported by the Workforce and OD Director Welsh Government as Business Committee Chair, the Chief Executive lead for Workforce supported by the Chair of Workforce and Organisation Development Director of NHS Wales employing organisation as Business Committee Chair, and an elected Chair from the Trade Unions. 

The Minister for Health & Social Services will be invited to attend at least one WPF meeting per annum for all or part of the business of the meeting.
