Policy Forum for Wales

Putting Healthier Wales into practice - next steps for health and social care integration in Wales

January 2019

The seminar discussed proposals in A Healthier Wales - assessing how the practical issues of delivering services can be addressed, and how the Welsh Government’s £100m transformation plan is being deployed.

Further discussion focused on the role of Regional Partnership Boards (RPBs) in creating and promoting innovative new models of care and delegates considered examples of best practice, how these might be enhanced, and the lessons to be learnt for wider adoption.

Other sessions focused on how the health and social care system as a whole can be prepared for delivering these new models, including workforce development, infrastructure and funding - as well as how barriers to collaboration can be overcome, how delivery mechanisms can be aligned, next steps for the designing governance systems, and options for refining the new national standards for rapid evaluation of innovations and improvements.

A seminar publication provides a timely record of proceedings, and acts as a guide to the latest thinking on current policy issues for those unable to be at the event.
