Health

The NHS is our most treasured public service. Welsh Liberal Democrats will always be guided by the founding principles of the NHS - providing free care, when you need it, regardless of your ability to pay.

The Welsh Liberal Democrats want to build a healthier society and a stronger Welsh NHS. Our vision is for an integrated health and social care service that looks after you wherever you are in Wales - north or south, urban or rural.

Everyone knows that Welsh Labour's stewardship of our health and social care services has been disastrous. Youth mental health services in crisis, cancer treatment targets that have never been met, the worst ambulance response times in the UK; that's just the tip of the iceberg of the legacy Welsh Labour Ministers will leave behind.

In England, we’ll invest the £8bn NHS bosses say they need to maintain the high quality care you expect, free when you need it, meaning up to £450 million more for Wales. We’ll ensure parity between mental health and physical health. We’ll ensure more nurses on Welsh wards, ending the scandal of Welsh nurses looking after more patients than anywhere else in the UK.
