In September 2016, Welsh Government placed the health board (then Abertawe Bro Morgannwg University Health Board) into targeted intervention status as part of NHS Wales Escalation and Intervention. As of July 2019, the health board remains at this status.

In 2018/19, the health board achieved the following against key priority measures:[6]

  • 74.5% of patients waiting less than 4 hours in ED (Welsh Government target is 95%)
  • 653 patients waited longer than 12 hours in ED (Welsh Government target is 0)
  • 62% of stroke patients had a direct admission within 1 hour (target is 47%)
  • 96% of stroke patients were assessed by a specialist within 24 hours (target is 87%)
  • 236 outpatients were waiting longer than 26 weeks for treatment (target is 0)
  • 401 outpatients were waiting over 8 weeks for diagnostics (target is 480)
  • No patients waited longer than 14 weeks for therapy care (target is 0)
  • There were 3 cases of C.difficile health care acquired infection (target is less than 17)
  • There were 14 cases of S.Aureus Bacteraemia health care acquired infection (target is less than 11)
  • There were 27 cases of E.Coli Bacteraemia health care acquired infection (target is less than 41)

Use of the private sector

In 2015-6 the board sent 1,599 patients to private sector providers for elective procedures to reduce waiting times because of its lack of capacity at a cost of £3.74 million, compared to 317 in 2014-5 and 160 in 2013–4.[7]
