Hundreds of people have been given help to cope with a range of common mental health problems as part of a programme delivered by Mind practitioners via some surgeries in Cwm Taf.
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’.
An innovative approach to delivering mental health services in Cwm Taf is helping to speed up access to the right services for patients.
The future provision of high quality services for patients at two GP practices has been secured following a decision by Cwm Taf University Health Board to return the surgeries to independent contractors.
A campaign has been launched across Merthyr Tydfil and Rhondda Cynon Taf to let people know what healthcare services are available in their local community. The #YourLocalTeam initiative from Cwm Taf University Health Board highlights the range of professionals who can help patients, without a need to go to the doctor first.
