This publication provides detail of Mortality rates and other related population indicators for SBU Health Board. The short term increased mortality seen in early 2020 is likely to be due to the impact of infection with COVID-19, however it is too early to determine the cause of these changes.
Please note that from 1st April 2019 responsibility for providing healthcare services for people in the Bridgend County Borough Council area transferred from Abertawe Bro Morgannwg University Health Board to Cwm Taf Morgannwg University Health Board. In light of this change to ABMU’s responsibilities, the organisation’s name has changed to Swansea Bay University Health Board. Data in this publication contains historical information prior to 1st April 2019 and as a result will relate to ABMU Health Board which will include Bridgend.
