Please see below update on the Health and Social Care Committee’s work so far this year, and what is coming up in March.
Mental Health Inequalities
We’ll start taking oral evidence later this term.
Scrutiny of the Welsh Government Draft Budget 2022-23
Legislative Consent Memoranda (LCM) for the Health and Care Bill
We have published two reports to inform the legislative consent process for the Health and Care Bill:
Report on the first and second supplementary LCMs (15 February 2022
Legislative Consent Memorandum for the Nationality and Borders Bill
After working with the Children, Young People and Education Committee to gather evidence, we published a report on the Legislative Consent Memorandum for the Nationality and Borders Bill on 15 February 2022. Read the report and find out more about the legislative consent process.
Hospital discharge and its impact on patient flow through hospitals
We held evidence sessions on our inquiry into hospital discharge and its impact on patient flow through hospitals at our meetings of 27 January, 10 February and 14 February.
We’ll be hearing from the Minister for Health and Social Services and the Deputy Minister for Social Services later this term.
Impact of the waiting times backlog on people in Wales who are waiting for diagnosis or treatment
We finished taking evidence on 10 February 2022 with a session with the Minister for Health and Social Services.
We’re now considering all of the evidence we’ve received, and will publish a report soon. In the meantime, you can read a summary of interviews and focus groups with people in Wales who are waiting for diagnosis or treatment (or who are caring for people who are waiting).
Women and girls’ health
We’ll be holding a one off session on women and girls’ health on 10 March, exploring the evidence for a women and girls health plan and what it should include.
