The Welsh Government is consulting on a white paper –

Services Fit for the Future: Proposals relating to quality and governance in health and care in Wales. 

The white paper wants your views on proposals covering a number of health and social care issues which may require future legislation.

They are consulting on proposals to:

  • strengthen leadership in NHS organisations
  • introduce new duties of quality and openness  
  • strengthen the voice of citizens in the way health and social care is planned and provided
  • design a clearer process for service change plans
  • improve the legal framework for the inspection and regulation of health services 
  • establish a new independent body for patient voice and regulation and inspection.

Deadline to submit feedback to the RCN is by 5pm on Friday 15th September 2017.
