[Meeting demand] requires investment, innovation and making the best use of the skills of the wider primary care workforce and teams working within primary care.

With the direction of travel for NHS Wales to deliver more care as close to people’s homes as possible, the measures announced today to progress to fully functioning primary care clusters will help to support the move away from secondary care services.

The service has been actively involved in developing the plan and we will continue to work together in supporting the wider primary care workforce to work with flexibility to increase the integration of health and social care teams and deliver services out of hospital and in the community.

– Richard Tompkins, Director of NHS Wales Employers
