Radical rethink needed to improve care services in Wales

December 7, 2009 5:41 PM

Commenting on the release of Care and Social Services Inspectorate Wales Annual Report 2008-2009Welsh Liberal Democrat Shadow Health Minister, Peter Black said: "The report is right to identify variation in service delivery across Wales and in recognising the need for further improvement. However, continuous improvement costs money even with partnership working, money that is not going to be forthcoming in the near future from the Welsh Assembly Government."

"Providers of care services need to continue to work smarter and crucially, need to be more attentive to the needs of service users. Achieving high quality care services within a difficult budgetary setting will require radical restructuring of services and strong political leadership at all levels of government."
