Impact of the waiting times backlog on people in Wales who are waiting for diagnosis or treatment

We published our report on 7 April 2022, and the Welsh Government responded on 30 May 2022.

The Senedd debated our report on 29 June 2022. Before the debate, we held an informal stakeholder event to discuss the Welsh Government’s response to our report and their plan for transforming and modernising planned care and reducing waiting lists.

We will publish a summary of the issues we discussed with stakeholders in the autumn.

Mental health inequalities

As part of our inquiry on mental health inequalities, we held oral evidence sessions to explore four key inquiry themes on 24 March4 May19 May8 June and 6 July.

We also held an informal stakeholder session on 8 June with people with lived experience of neurodiversity.

We undertook an external visit to EYST Cymru and Barnardo’s Cymru’s Beyond the Blue project on Thursday 23 June. Thank you to both organisations for accommodating us and sharing your experiences.

To ensure that people and their lived experience remain at the heart of this inquiry, over the summer we will be engaging with the workforce and Welsh Youth Parliament members, and establishing an online advisory group.

We will hear from the Welsh Government in the autumn term, before publishing a report later this year.
