Next steps for primary care in Wales: access, innovation and transformation

Morning, Thursday, 6th July 2017

Central Cardiff

THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED



This seminar will examine the potential for new ways of working to transform primary care, at a time when provision across Wales faces substantial pressures and as innovative new ways of working are developed to tackle the issues.


Coming as the Welsh Government nears the end of its primary care service plan up to 2018, delegates will discuss funding, access, and integration with the rest of the NHS Wales and adult social care, as well as issues of retention and recruitment in the workforce.
