It was established in 2009 as the legal successor organisation to Cwm Taf NHS Trust (Welsh: Ymddiriedolaeth GIG Cwm Taf). The Trust was formed on 1 April 2008, following the merger of the North Glamorgan and Pontypridd & Rhondda NHS Trusts. Cwm Taf Morgannwg University Health Board is the operational name of Cwm Taf Morgannwg Local Health Board.

Cwm Taf Morgannwg University Health Board provides healthcare services mainly for the population of Merthyr Tydfil County Borough, Rhondda Cynon Taf County Borough and (from 1 April 2019) Bridgend County Borough. Cwm Taf Morgannwg NHS Trust's headquarters are in Ynysmeurig House, Navigation Park, Abercynon, Wales.[3]



Maternity services have been put into special measures in April 2019 after investigations into the standards of maternity care.[4]
