The service area is well established and is always undergoing positive change to enhance service delivery which is both varied and interesting.

The Intellectual disabilities service is a well-established team with close links with our colleagues within Mental Health services, Welsh Government, and Improvement Cymru to ensure all new ways of work will and can be adopted for the clients we support. Key to the successful development of safe, effective, valve-based health care, is the clinical leadership delivered by consultants and senior clinicians, which is only possible where the role of a psychiatrist is clearly defined.
