Health and care services recovery plan for WalesHealth and care services recovery plan for Wales

The Health Minister has published a plan to help the health and care system in Wales recover from the COVID-19 pandemic.

The section most signifcicant to social care is "Chapter 6 - Seamless social care services", however, other sections do discuss the integration of health and social care and the health and social care workforce strategy.

The chapter recognises the significant pressures that the sector has faced during the pandemic, the lack of parity between health and social care, and that issues around financial sustainability have been exacerbated by the pandemic. Positives coming out of the pandemic are also highlighted such as new ways of joint working being identified and an increasd use of digital communication tools.

Priorities identified in relation to the sector include the development of the Rebalancing Care and Support White Paper; the need to consider the future of the Local Authority Hardship Fund; the desire to move towards paying a Real Living Wage in the sector and to ensure support for wellbeing and mental health for workers; an improvement of collaborative working; and support in relation to long COVID.
