Health Minister Lesley Griffiths has visited two specialist ABM healthcare services developed in response to the changing needs of modern healthcare.
The Minister met with members of staff from the Physio Self Referral Service and the Musculoskeletal Clinical Assessment Service.
The services were set up in response to an increase in demand for physiotherapy and orthopaedic services and the health board says they have successfully treated more patients and reduced the length of time patients wait to be seen.
The Health minister was impressed with the units.
“This is a great example of best practice. It’s about patients being able to see the right people at the right time, and here the infrastructure is in place for that to happen. The satisfaction of both patients and staff is very clear to see.
The Physio Self Referral Service allows patients across the Health Board to telephone a physiotherapist directly to discuss their musculoskeletal problems.
