Welsh Government 'liasing closely' with NHS over veterans care

The Welsh Government acknowledges and appreciates the sacrifices made by our service personnel, and as in the rest of the UK, veterans are entitled to receive priority healthcare for service related conditions, relative to those with similar levels of clinical need who have not served.

The Welsh Government will liaise closely with the NHS as part of an all-Wales working group, established to lead and co-ordinate the work needed for the implementation of the Murrison Report in Wales.
