Wales gives green light to new health and social care outcomes plans

Welsh health and care minister Eluned Morgan MS has launched the new health and social care outcomes framework for Wales, promising improved population health and wellbeing, better quality and more accessible health and social care services, higher value health and social care and a motivated and sustainable health and social care workforce.

By measuring integrated outcomes, the Government intends to shift the emphasis from measuring what the system does to what it achieves for people. Another key aim is to reduce fragmented working. Morgan describes the new framework as “an opportunity to develop joint plans and accountability, particularly in the context of regional and integrated working”.

Three core values underpin the framework: prevention, equality  and individual responsibility, supporting people to manage their own health and wellbeing. These will be accounted for using performance measures co-developed with stakeholders over the summer

A finalised framework will be published in October to support the NHS Wales planning framework for 2023-24. The finalised health and social care outcomes framework will be used to provide progress reports to the Senedd on the strategy ‘A Healthier Wales’.  

The framework complements the outcomes framework for people who need care and support and for carers who need support, which is part of the Social Services and Well-being (Wales) Act 2014.
