Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board & Bangor University

Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board provides a full range of primary, community, mental health, and acute hospital services for a population of around 676,000 people across the six counties of North Wales (Anglesey, Gwynedd, Conwy, Denbighshire, Flintshire and Wrexham) as well as some parts of Mid Wales, Cheshire, and Shropshire. The Health Board has three acute hospitals; Ysbyty Gwynedd, Ysbyty Glan Clwyd and Wrexham Maelor Hospital.

The Health Board actively supports a varied and dynamic research agenda and works with local industry to support the national agenda of increasing both health and wealth in Wales. It encourages staff to develop innovative and creative approaches to the delivery of health care that can be further developed with partners in academic, industry, and health care settings and with active engagement with Health and Care Research Wales (formally known as NISCHR) infrastructure.

PKB has worked very closely with the clinical and research team at Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board & Bangor University. For the first time, PKB has been tested in an inpatient clinical environment. Please see the published paper by the Royal College of Physicians below:

Moreover, a very interesting report about how involving patients the harm in the clinical setting can be reduced.
