Aneurin Bevan Local Health Board
|This article relies on references to primary sources. (October 2009)|
The Local Health Board (LHB) was launched in October 2009 through the merger of Gwent Healthcare NHS Trust and Blaenau Gwent, Caerphilly, Newport, Torfaen and Monmouthshire LHBs. It is named after Aneurin Bevan, the founder of the National Health Service.
The total catchment area for healthcare services contains a population of approximately 600,000. Acute, intermediate, primary and community care and mental health services are all provided by the LHB. Services are delivered across a network of primary-care practices, community clinics, health centres, one learning disability hospital, a number of community hospitals, mental health facilities, one local general hospital and two district general hospitals – Royal Gwent and Nevill Hall. In 2010 the new Ysbyty Aneurin Bevan hospital replaced community hospitals in Blaenau Gwent.
The Health Board employs 14,000 staff, two thirds of whom are involved in direct patient care. There are more than 250 consultants in a total of over 1,000 hospital and general practice doctors, 6,000 nurses, midwives, allied professionals and community workers.
