Public Health Wales (Welsh: Iechyd Cyhoeddus Cymru) is an NHS Trust which was established on 1 October 2009 as part of a major restructuring of the health service in Wales. It aims to protect and improve health and wellbeing and reduce health inequalities in Wales.[1]

Mission and resources

The Trust has four statutory functions:[2]

  • Provide and manage public health, health protection, healthcare improvement, health advisory, child protection and microbiological laboratory services and services relating to the surveillance, prevention and control of communicable diseases;[3]
  • Develop and maintain arrangements for making information about matters related to the protection and improvement of health in Wales available to the public; to undertake and commission research into such matters and to contribute to the provision and development of training in such matters;
  • Undertake the systematic collection, analysis and dissemination of information about the health of the people of Wales in particular including cancer incidence, mortality and survival; and prevalence of congenital anomalies; and
  • Provide, manage, monitor, evaluate and conduct research into screening of health conditions and screening of health related matters.

For 2018/19 Public Health Wales employed 1,651 staff across Wales, with an income of £135 million.[4]


A Board is responsible for Public Health Wales’ strategic direction,[5] governance framework, organisational culture and development and stakeholder relations. It comprises a Chair, six Non Executive Directors and five Executive Directors, led by a Chief Executive.[6] Jan Williams OBE FRSPH is the Chair.

The Executive Directors and three other Board level Directors make up the Executive Team,[7] which manages Public Health Wales. Each year Public Health Wales is required to conduct a self-assessment and demonstrate improvement against the Healthcare Standards for Wales.[8]

The organisation is split into seven key directorates:

  • Health and Well-being
  • Public Health Services
  • Policy, Research and International Development
  • Quality, Nursing and Allied Health Professionals
  • Operations and Finance
  • People and Organisational Development
  • NHS Quality Improvement and Patient Safety/1000 Lives
