Western Bay Regional Partnership Board

The Western Bay Regional Partnership Board (WBRPB) is one of Wales’s seven regional health and social care boards. It develops joint working between the health board and the three local authorities, third and independent sector partners, and service user and carer representatives.

While a similar forum was operational since 2014, The Western Bay Regional Partnership Board was formally established in November 2016.

The board meets on a quarterly basis. View WBRPB’s minutes here

View the Western Bay Population Assessment Report

Western Bay’s partners must collect information on citizens’ care needs. It is summarised in the ‘Population Assessment Report’ below, which can be used to make better decisions about providing care and support.

 

Population assessments are run every four years. In that time, they are refreshed, and partners can update information to ensure effective monitoring.

The Population Assessment Report’s contents

Specifically, the Population Assessment Report covers:

  • the range and level of services needed by locals’ care and support needs
  • gaps in service provision, and how to meet them
  • changes required to improve services in the future

The report also considers carers’ support needs, as well as the range and level of the region’s preventative services.

The findings of the Population Assessment are used to inform the Western Bay Area Plan.
