Many outpatient clinics are currently suspended due to the Covid-19 pandemic and services in the NHS have had to find innovative ways in which to engage with patients to maintain and provide treatment.
Patients who could become confused or agitated while in hospital are being given extra support following the launch of a new scheme by Cwm Taf University Health Board.
Cabinet Secretary for Health & Social Services, Vaughan Gething visited Cwm Taf University Health Board today (June 11) to launch the Welsh Government’s Strategy: ‘A Healthier Wales: Our long-term plan for health and social care’.
Plans by Macmillan Cancer Support and Cwm Taf University Health Board to develop a £6.75m specialist care unit near Llantrisant have been approved.
Cwm Taf University Health Board is the only health board in Wales to share end of life patient advance care plans (ACP) with Welsh Ambulance Service Trust (WAST) control room staff.
