The Minister said:
"I am very pleased that these individuals have decided to use their considerable skills to contribute to the NHS in Wales.
"The Health Service in Wales faces a range of challenges including a rising elderly population, health inequalities, more people with chronic conditions, medical staffing pressures and some specialist services being spread too thinly.
"The experience of those appointed today will help us as we implement the changes necessary to meet those challenges, as outlined in our five-year vision for the NHS in Wales, Together for Health."
