Vanessa Young, Director of the Welsh NHS Confederation said:

“The NHS warmly welcomes this significant additional funding, which will allow health and care leaders to invest in joined up services.  We are also pleased to see some additional funding for social services on which the NHS depends.

“This investment is a crucial step towards achieving the Welsh Government’s vision for a Healthier Wales.   

“Our ability to deliver sustainable high quality, timely healthcare is heavily dependent on the availability of social care and other local community services.  As well as funding for health and social care Wales needs investment in local services that support the wider determinants of health such as housing, education and leisure. 

“In the meantime the NHS will continue to work with partners so that together we can make the best of all the resources available to us.”
