Mike Hedges welcomes £15million for critical care services in Wales

Critical care services in Wales are set to benefit from a new annual £15million fund, The Welsh Government has announced.

Mike Hedges AM for Swansea East said…….. ‘This is great news for the Welsh Health Service. Critically Ill people will receive a new redesigned service, remodelled to take account of new technologies as well as this new investment. This will enable the service to move forward towards the next decade with its future secured.’

The funding will be used to strengthen critical care so it can continue to deliver the very highest standard of care to those who need it in the future.

It will help to redesign the way critical care services in Wales are delivered and develop a national model of care for those who are critically ill.

This model will look at developing and expanding the workforce, increasing the number of critical care beds and the options for transferring critically ill patients.
