People & Culture Teams

At Cardiff and Vale, we pride ourselves on being a great place to train, work and live; with inclusion, wellbeing and development at the heart of everything we do.   As a team, our primary purpose is to improve the experience of our staff so that they can deliver health and care to the highest level possible.  

The People and Culture Plan is the road-map that will help us achieve this, both now and in the future.   By delivering the Plan we will have people with the right skills, in the right number, at the right time; thereby reducing duplication and waste and avoiding harm wherever possible.   We want our people to be happy, healthy and supported, so that they can in turn, support the wellbeing of the people in their care.  

Each of the teams within People and Culture play a key role in delivering this ambition.   Click on the links to find our more about what we do and how to get in touch with us:
