Convened by RCP Cymru Wales, 22 organisations have come together to call for a single national body with strategic oversight of NHS Wales to drive improvements in patient care and hold health boards to account.
As the Welsh NHS enters a second pandemic winter, 17 medical royal colleges and faculties convened by RCP Cymru Wales have come together with a joint statement calling for national action on workforce shortages, health inequalities and the NHS backlog.
Ahead of the 2021 Senedd election, 36 organisations from across health, social care, transport and housing, convened by RCP Cymru Wales, have signed up to a paper which calls for urgent Welsh government action on health inequalities.
The Royal College of Physicians (RCP) has long argued that we need to rethink the way we deliver healthcare: breaking down barriers between hospitals and the community, and working in partnership with patients to deliver joined-up care.
We need an NHS that puts patients first. We need a system that enables doctors, nurses and others on the front line of the NHS to deliver the safest, most effective care, in whatever setting is most appropriate for each patient’s needs.
