The Regional Partnership Board have published a new plan for how health and social care services will work together to meet the care and support needs of people in north Wales.

The plan sets out priorities for integrating services between health and social care across north Wales, including for older people with complex needs, children and young people, people with learning disabilities, carers, and mental health. It’s been written in response to the population assessment which highlighted an increase in the need for care and support. People across north Wales have taken part to have their say about the shape of future services.

Gwynedd Council Cabinet Member, Councillor Gareth Roberts is the Chair of the Regional Partnership Board. He said: “Councils across north Wales have worked together with Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board and other partners to write this plan and consulted widely with people who use services, third sector organisations and other partners. The plan will help us design services to meet the needs of everyone needing care and support, and their carers.”
