Still more to do – NHS Wales


The head of NHS in Wales has claimed the health service has made "enormous progress" in delivering improvements over the past year, the BBC reports.

However, he pointed out that too many patients are “waiting on trolleys” for emergency care.

NHS Wales chief executive David Sissling said further improvements need to be made in key areas and a failure to do so would risk compromising the quality and sustainability of important services.

Sissling said the NHS had to become "more ingenious and innovative" in providing services. He told the BBC: "All health boards have balanced financial plans and we are working with them to make sure they deliver those. They are working to deliver any inefficiencies, they are working to eliminate any waste.”
