WHSSC Committee

Exciting News! The Welsh Health Specialised Services Committee is evolving into the NHS Wales Joint Commissioning Committee starting April 1, 2024. During this transition, our website will remain active. Explore our new home at for updates and information.

WHSSC (hosted by Cwm Taf Morgannwg University Health Board) was established in 2010 by the seven Local Health Boards in Wales to ensure that the population of Wales has fair and equitable access to the full range of specialised services. 

WHSSC are responsible for the joint planning of Specialised and Tertiary Services on behalf of Local Health Boards in Wales.

In establishing WHSSC to work on their behalf, the seven Local Health Boards (LHBs) recognised that the most efficient and effective way of planning these services was to work together to reduce duplication and ensure consistency.

If you wish to contact WHSSC, please use the contact page, given the current working conditions, there may be a delay in our responding to general enquiries. In an emergency please call the Royal Glamorgan Hospital on 01443 443 443 and for the WHSSC On-call Executive.
