The ARCH Portfolio is a collaboration which brings together health and science to:
-Transform the NHS in South West Wales;
-Train and develop the next generation of doctors, nurses, health workers, scientists, innovators and leaders; and,
-Boost the local economy by encouraging investment and creating new jobs.
The university and health boards have chosen to collaborate to create an innovative and fresh way forward for the provision of healthcare and health and wellbeing services for South West Wales. The ARCH region covers six local authority areas of Swansea, Neath Port Talbot, Carmarthenshire, Ceredigion and Pembrokeshire and will benefit a population of one million people. Swansea University’s Medical School, College of Human and Health Sciences, Institute of Life Science and School of Management form the university element of the collaboration.
