Health and Social Care Committee update

Mental health inequalities

We published our report on 19 December 2022. The full report and a summary are available on the inquiry webpage as pdf, word and web versions.

We’ve also published a summary of the views our online advisory group comprised of people with different lived experiences shared with us during the inquiry.

The Welsh Government is due to respond to our recommendations by early February.

Gynaecological Cancers

In November we launched a new consultation on gynaecological cancers.

The closing date for responses is 13 January 2023; information about how to respond can be found on our website.

Issues facing the social care sector

On 30 November we held a horizon-scanning session with Care Inspectorate Wales to discuss issues facing the social care sector.

A transcript of the meeting can be found on our website or you can watch on

Following the meeting, we wrote to the Deputy Minister for Social Services to highlight the clear and stark messages around the fragility of the social care sector.

Health and social care workforce

As part of our ongoing work on the health and social care workforce, we visited the University of South Wales on 8 December 2022. As well as giving us a chance to hear directly from students, staff and researchers about the issues that matter to them and see the facilities, the visit will help inform our scrutiny session with the Chief Nursing Officer on 26 January.

Endoscopy services: follow up inquiry

Our consultation on Endoscopy services closed on 13 December 2022. Thank you to everyone that submitted evidence. We will begin holding oral evidence sessions in early 2023.

Welsh Government’s draft budget 2023-24

The Welsh Government published its draft budget for 2023-24 on 13 December. We’ll be scrutinising the Ministers with responsibility for health and social care on the draft budget on Wednesday 11 January. The session will be broadcast live on, and available on demand afterwards.
