Reform of residential care services needs to accelerate, says National Assembly committee

“Improvements to how residential care services are delivered in Wales need to speed up according to a National Assembly for Wales committee.

The Health and Social Care Committee has written to the Minister for Health and Social Services, Mark Drakeford AM, setting out areas to consider.

The Committee highlighted access to independent advocacy as a key part of quality care for older people and has called on the Welsh Government, local authorities, and health boards to work together to secure appropriate and sustainable funding for independent advocacy services across Wales.”
