How We Support NHS Wales

We work as an NHS partner with:

  • All NHS Wales Health Boards

Our Mission

To provide a world class leading logistics service for NHS Wales incorporating Pathology Services, Blood Services, Internal Mail, Medical Records and Hospital Supplies with excellent governance, traceability and reporting.

Our Vision

Our vision is that HCS will be a distinctive and respected brand, which will have assimilated similar services currently managed within Health Boards to a single delivery model to obtain synergies, remove variation and reduce risk and harm.
