Specialist Care Services
There are many areas of specialist care in Wales that have been neglected and will require specific strategic plans for investment. Examples of this include neonatal care where for too long health boards have had to choose between overworking current staff or amalgamating services. Another example is end of life care services where investment is needed in hospice and end of life community care. “Long Covid” is currently emerging as a condition that will require national attention to ensure the right services are in place for those suffering.
A Plaid Cymru Government would make sure that all of these areas receive strategic attention and there is a clear national line of accountability to the improvement of services across Wales.
