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.
A five year plan to develop more job and training opportunities; give babies a better start in life, and improve the mental health of young people has been launched by a collective of public sector and voluntary organisations across Cwm Taf.
