Health Finances

12 Jul 2012 - 10:00am

This report provides a more detailed assessment of the financial position across NHS bodies, and the financial challenges that the NHS faces.

The key message from this analysis is that with the NHS and other public services facing unprecedented financial challenges, the historical patterns of the Welsh Government providing NHS bodies with additional money during the year to manage deficits is not sustainable. In recent years, the Welsh Government has worked with NHS bodies to improve cost control and make savings but more radical changes to health services are needed to ensure the NHS in Wales is financially sustainable
