This is an unprecedented time for the NHS as we deal with the outbreak of COVID-19 in Wales. This promises to be the toughest challenge we have faced and already we have seen NHS organisations in Wales react quickly to the need to transform services, increase capacity and providing the person-centred care people need.​

NHS organisations continue to work towards delivering on the vision outlined within the Welsh government’s long-term plan for an integrated health and social care system despite the immense pressure they currently face.

The examples in this briefing focus on some of the person-centred projects and initiatives which involve our members, the seven Local Health Boards, three NHS Trusts and Health Education and Improvement Wales (HEIW), working in partnership with the public and voluntary sector across Wales. If we are to achieve our shared vision, we’ll need to learn from these projects and identify and overcome the key barriers to scaling them up at pace and scale.
