Urology services in the Welsh NHS will be transformed to ensure people are seen by the right clinician, in the right place and at the right time as part of a new plan unveiled by Deputy Health Minister Vaughan Gething.
There are approximately 53,000 new urology outpatient referrals every year in Wales, with 74% of people receiving some kind of treatment. More than 4,000 people every year are diagnosed with a urological cancer in Wales.
Deputy Health Minister Vaughan Gething said: “This new plan sets out to transform urology services in the Welsh NHS. It will focus on those with the greatest needs first, carrying out the minimum appropriate interventions, while focusing on a smaller number of areas which will deliver the greatest impact and outcomes.”
