NHS Dentists? Coming here?

I was in the chemist's this morning and my eye fell on a leaflet inviting people to send their details to the Local Health Board if they wish to have access to an NHS dentist as a new dental care company is shortly to be offering its services around here. (The idea of sending in a form is to avoid the politically embarrassing queues filmed some months ago in mid-Wales, of course, but I digress.)
There was a website address on the form, which I looked at tonight and, whilst browsing, I chanced upon a vacancy for an assistant planning officer. So I thought I would take a look - only idle curiosity, you understand. Below is the job description:

Wrexham Local Health Board is looking for a highly motivated and enthusiastic person to work as part of the LHB Planning Team.
The Post: An exciting opportunity has arisen to work in LHB Development and Performance Directorate at the Wrexham Local Health Board. You will assist the Commissioning & Performance Manager to manage the Local Health Board and Partners ‘Hearts & Minds Project’. The role will involve joint working and service development in support of the project. You will also support broader commissioning & development work within the directorate. This post will provide an excellent opportunity to gain valuable experience of working in the challenging environment of health services planning.

Well, I'm not a serious contender for the job, but what I would really love to know is.............

What the hell does it mean???

A serious contender for the 'Plain English' campaign.
How refreshing to hear a chemist correctly named, instead of the hideous americanism, drug store.

Might be getting myself into deep water, though, Michelle.
Krip, imagine what it must sound like in Welsh!

I would imagine a lot of phlegm would be involved.

I'm in the business and even I don't know what they're on about!

That's quite reassuring then, SP. At least it means that I'm not losing it in my old age!
