Swansea Bay UHB Chief Executive Tracy Myhill’s leadership has been publicly recognised for the second time this year.

Tracy won the Leadership in the Public Sector category in the Leading Wales Awards which took place at Hilton Cardiff.

This success came just three months after Tracy scooped the Leader Award at Chwarae Teg’s Womenspire Awards.

The Leading Wales Awards have been running for 15 years and are hosted in association with the Institute of Leadership and Management.

They champion good leadership and influence leadership development by recognising, identifying, and celebrating individuals who through their leadership contribute to the prosperity of Wales.

The judging panel said Tracy led from the heart, and described her as humble, genuine and inspirational.

Tracy said:  “Just to be nominated and then shortlisted was wonderful, but to win the award on the night – the second award this year - was just fabulous.

“There were so many worthy contenders. Having heard so many inspiring stories from other finalists, I feel very grateful and humble indeed, especially for the judges’ comments on the night.

“As I’ve said previously, to be a public service leader in Wales is truly an honour and privilege.

“I never forget the reason why I have done every job I’ve held in NHS Wales – from receptionist to CEO – and that is our patients, our communities, and our people.

“I have been very fortunate in my career to have been inspired and supported by so many people and leaders along the way which is why I place great emphasis on leadership in our health board.

“I’m pleased with the way in which we are making strides in this area at Swansea Bay. We can all be leaders – we don’t need it in our job title to lead.”

Health board Interim Chair Emma Woollett said: “There is no doubt in my mind that Tracy demonstrates outstanding leadership and I think there are thousands of staff within Swansea Bay who would agree with me.

“It is great news for Swansea Bay and for the NHS in Wales that our Chief Executive has been recognised so publicly for her visible and positive leadership against such strong competition across the public sector.”
