We have faced significant pressures over the last week in relation to emergency attendances to our main hospitals.
Our planned changes to community services, such as rolling out the home enhanced care service will provide alternatives to hospital admission and will therefore reduce pressure on emergency admissions and beds in both the acute and community hospitals.
Releasing resources from some inpatient facilities will allow us to develop a more flexible, responsive service across North Wales that avoids the need for hospital admission.
