New Chair of Cardiff and Vale University Health Board announced
Health Minister Vaughan Gething recently (26 June 2020) announced the new chair of Cardiff and Vale University Health Board (CAVUHB) will be Charles Janczewski.
Charles Janczewski, known as Jan, is a former executive director of the Wales Board of Lloyds Bank Plc and he was previously an independent business consultant operating across Wales and the South West of England.
Brought up in Swansea, he is now an honorary professor at the College of Human and Health Sciences at the city’s university, where he chairs the governance board of the Health and Wellbeing Academy.
Health Minister Vaughan Gething, recently said:
“I’m very pleased to welcome Jan as chair of Cardiff and Vale University Health Board. He is taking up this role in the middle of a worldwide pandemic, but he is enthusiastic to begin work.
“Health board chairs are appointed for their experience and Jan’s previous roles, including as an independent board member and vice chair in NHS Wales, mean his contributions come with great understanding, value and regard.
“I look forward to continuing the Welsh Government’s work with Jan and Cardiff and Vale to deliver our ambitious programme to protect our people from coronavirus and create a healthy and active Wales as we work towards the ‘new normal’.”
Speaking of his new appointment, Jan recently said:
“I am delighted to have been appointed chair of Cardiff and Vale UHB and to continue building on the role I took on as vice chair to deliver healthcare services for Cardiff and the Vale of Glamorgan.
“We are currently living in unprecedented times and the role of the health service in our communities has never been greater. Working alongside committed and compassionate staff to continuously improve our service is a privilege, for which I thank them, and together we will continue to provide healthcare during times of crisis alongside our other key workers and partner organisations.
“I believe one of the most important qualities of a chair is to listen to the views of our patients, our staff and our communities so we can continuously improve our health services together. The uncertainty of the coronavirus pandemic means we are currently learning to co-exist with the virus alongside needing to get many of our services back online.
“This will be a significant challenge for not only health and our society and I am committed to leading the board and my colleagues in this challenge.”
