Quality, Safety and Improvement Committee


This Committee advises the Board about the quality and safety of public health services and programmes delivered to improve population health outcomes.  It provides assurance about arrangements for safeguarding and improving the quality and safety of service user/person/population centred health provision.

Following a committee structure review in 2016, the Information Governance Committee was dissolved.  Subsequently, the Quality Safety and Improvement Committee is responsible for Information Governance and ensures that Public Health Wales complies with all relevant legislation. Archived papers for previous meetings of the Information Governance Committee can be found here.
