On Friday 15th November, Welsh Government hosted an event to showcase A Healthier Wales and what is being done locally in Cardiff & Vale to achieve its outcomes.

A Healthier Wales is the Welsh Government’s long-term plan to bring health and social care services together more. For this to happen we need everyone who works in health, social care and the third sector to think differently about how they work. 

The agenda focused on the to change the way we deliver health and social care services in Wales and to make it fit for the future.

The event at the All Nation’s Centre in Cardiff saw presentations from local projects, highlighting how they are transforming the way health and social care is delivered across the region.  The presentations included:

  • Dr Karen Pardy discussing the Accelerated Cluster model currently being piloted across the South West Cardiff cluster
  • Eve Williams introducing the Ymbarel project, a new support service for parents with learning disabilities.
  • Suzanne Clifton and Tom Narbrough presenting GP Triage pilot project, which encourages sustainability in General Medical Services by providing patients in the Vale of Glamorgan with a ‘single point of access’ to obtaining medical and well-being support.

Attendees also shared ideas and provided insights during the Q&A and workshop sessions.
