Welsh Government logoWelsh Government want your views on proposals covering a number of health and social care issues which may require future legislation.

This consultation document sets out how they may use legislation, either primary or secondary, to respond to some of these challenges.

It builds on work already started by the Social Services and Well-being (Wales) Act 2014 and the Regulation and Inspection of Social Care (Wales) Act 2016.

It also acts as a potential platform for any recommendations arising from the Parliamentary Review of Health and Social Care, which is currently underway.

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
