The Health Secretary Vaughan Gething has announced an additional £10 million to help relieve winter pressures on health and social care services in Wales.
The Welsh Government says the funding will be used to support:
- health boards
- the ambulance service
- social care services
- the increase in people using services at this time of year
The Welsh Government says it will help relieve pressure across the whole system from primary care through to hospital care and social services in Wales, for example enabling older people to leave hospital more quickly through the use of support packages where appropriate.
The Health Secretary says he has also taken action to relieve pressure on GPs.
But some people say that £10 million is just "a drop in the ocean."
