Health Minister unveils new “Welsh Way” of working in the NHS


A new set of principles for all staff employed by the Welsh NHS, which form the basis of the “Welsh way” of working, has been unveiled by Wales’ Health and Social Services Minister Mark Drakeford.
The NHS core principles, which have been developed in partnership by the Welsh Government, NHS Wales Employers and trade unions, are the foundation of how staff should work across and within NHS Wales.
Professor Drakeford said: “I am delighted to launch the Core Principles for the NHS in Wales. The very definition of principle is a fundamental truth that serves as a foundation for a system of belief. I hope it is clear to everyone that these are the fundamental truths we all wish to see our NHS proceed on. I am determined these principles will become integral to the way we work in the NHS in Wales.
“These principles will be owned by everyone connected to the NHS in Wales, especially the staff, who already embody them; whether it is putting their patients first, learning from their experiences or pulling together as teams.”
