On my last day as Executive Director Public Health Services and Medical Director for Public Health Wales I just wish to say a very big thank you to everyone in the organisation; to those who have supported me in discharging my responsibilities over the past eight years and to all of you for the roles you have played in support of the response by Public Health Wales to the COVID-19 pandemic this year. I have been privileged to have worked with outstanding talent and you are the reason why Public Health Wales is now held in such high regard as a national public health institute. I am very grateful to Andrew Jones and Eleri Davies for covering my executive responsibilities until my successor is appointed. I wish them every success. My thanks and gratitude also to the Board for their support and especially to Tracey Cooper and Jan Williams. Finally, on a positive note, I am certain that 2021 will be a much better year; one that we can all look forward to and I wish everyone a joyful Christmas and a Happy New Year!!
