Policy Forum for Wales

Priorities for the future of health and social care in Wales

Morning, Tuesday, 20th March 2018

Park Inn Hotel, Mary Ann Street, Cardiff CF10 2JH

THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED



This seminar focuses on the future of health and social care in Wales and will be an opportunity for policymakers and stakeholders to discuss the recently published final report of the Parliamentary Review of Health and Social Care.


Delegates will discuss the Review’s key findings and recommendations, and the priorities for the Welsh Government’s subsequent £100m Transformation Fund - focusing on the proposed new models of seamless care, the potential improvements to the digital and capital infrastructure and ways to engage staff and service users in proactive care.


They will also consider what more can be done to improve access to health and social care services closer to people’s homes, following the announcement from the Welsh Government, of up to £68m in funding for 19 integrated health and care centres.


Further sessions will examine the main proposals outlined in the Welsh Government’s White Paper Services Fit for the Future - including the replacement of Community Health Councils with a new citizen voice body working across health and social care, reforms to regulation and inspection arrangements, and measures to strengthen governance and leadership across health and social care.
