Press Conference: Planning resilient urgent and emergency care services for winter

It is likely the winter period will present additional challenges to an already stretched urgent and emergency care system if there are increases in prevalence of both COVID-19 and influenza, and within the context of the cost of living and energy crises.

£2 million to improve emergency waiting rooms

The funding will improve facilities in hospital emergency departments, including seating, information screens, better access to water or food stations and improvements to Wi-Fi and electrical charging points.

New mental health unit plan moves a step closer

Outline plans to build a new mental health unit at Ysbyty Glan Clwyd to improve the quality of care for adults and older people have been approved by the Health Minister.

The Welsh Government is considering some changes to the law, to improve social care and continuing NHS healthcare

Proposals include legislation to eliminate profit from the care of children looked after. And introduce direct payments for adults who are eligible for continuing NHS healthcare.

Views are also sought on: • extending mandatory reporting of children and adults at risk • changes to regulation of social care services and the workforce • inclusion of childcare and play workers within the definition of social care worker.

This consultation closes at midnight on 7 November 2022.
