Welcome,Croeso

Medical Director 

Thank you for your interest in Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board (BCUHB) and this exceptional opportunity to join our Board. This website gives you quick access to information you might need to make an informed decision about whether BCUHB is an organisation you would like to join and to find out about this potential new career challenge.

As a fully integrated healthcare commissioner and provider with responsibility for all primary, community, mental health and acute hospital services for the 678,000 population of the six counties of North Wales and with a £1.4 billion annual budget, we are by any measure a large and complex organisation – the second largest NHS organisation in the whole of the UK. We cover a large geography - one that includes Snowdonia National Park, Anglesey and the North Wales coast. This gives us unique clinical and operational opportunities and challenges, as well as breath-taking views and a wonderful lifestyle.

I joined the Health Board as Chief Executive at the end of last year and I am excited by the huge potential of our integrated organisation, working with our partners, to deliver services for our populations that will reduce health inequalities, focus on prevention, and support healthier lives.  We have a once in a lifetime opportunity ahead as we embark on the development of a brand new Medical and Health Science School in collaboration with Bangor University that will create our workforce for the future and enhance our firm commitment to embedding a research-rich and learning culture throughout our dedicated workforce.

I hope the information provided in this website encourages you to look more closely at BCUHB and this significant opportunity in North Wales.  Please do call Richard Murphy, Michelle Shirley or Emma Pickup at GatenbySanderson on 07393 013 067 to discuss your interest and find out more.

I look forward to meeting you during the process.


Jo Whitehead
Chief Executive
