Service Fit for the Future: Quality and Governance in Health and Care in Wales - White Paper
Synopsis

Proposals within the White Paper include:

  • Strengthening leadership of health boards to encourage stronger governance;
  • Introducing a Duty of Quality for the Population of Wales, focusing on collaboration between health boards for service planning and delivery;
  • Replacing the current model of Community Health Councils with new independent arrangements, to strengthen the voice of citizens;
  • Building a clearer process for service change by introducing an independent mechanism to provide clinical advice on substantial decisions in this area, with advice from the proposed new citizen voice body;
  • Joint investigations of complaints which span health and social care, and improving inspection and regulation by improving the legal framework for the inspection and regulation of health services, while also considering the establishment of an independent body for patient voice in this area.
