I would like to update Members on the appointment of a chief executive to Abertawe Bro Morgannwg University Health Board.

The Health Board has announced that Tracy Myhill will take over from Alex Howells who has been Interim Chief Executive.

Tracy has more than 30 years experience in the NHS and has transformed the Welsh Ambulance Services NHS Trust into one of the best performing in the UK.

I announced on 17 November that Alex Howells had been appointed to be the first chief executive of Health Education and Improvement Wales.

Both Tracy and Alex will take up their new roles in the New Year.

Recruitment for a new chief executive of the Welsh Ambulance Services NHS Trust will begin shortly.
