A Healthier Wales: our Plan for Health and Social Care

This document from the Welsh Government emphasises a need to bring care closer to people’s homes which will in turn reduce reliance on hospitals.

It calls for more joined-up services to be provided in communities resulting in more accessible hospital care for those who need it more urgently.

It recommends that the health service places its priority on preventing illness, on supporting people to manage their own health and wellbeing and on enabling people to live independently for as long as they can.
