£45m of new investment for Welsh NHS to deal with winter pressures


The NHS in Wales will receive an extra £45m of new investment to help it respond to winter pressures, the Welsh Government has announced.
Health and Social Services Minister Mark Drakeford said: “This extra £45m of new funding will help our health service continue to deal with the significant increase in the pressures which it is facing and manage this surge in demand without any knock-on effects on other parts of the service.
“This new investment once again shows our commitment to the Welsh NHS. We are protecting funding for the health service and for social care despite record-breaking cuts to our budget. Funding is now at record levels, with £6.7bn being spent on health and social services this year, growing to £7bn the next financial year.”
