The West Wales Care Partnership (WWCP) has been established to oversee the continued transformation and integration of health, social care and wellbeing services in the West Wales area. The Partnership brings together the three local authorities in West Wales (Carmarthenshire County Council, Ceredigion Council and Pembrokeshire County Council), Hywel Dda University Health Board and representatives of the third and independent sector. A Regional Partnership Board has been established to promote the integration of key services and oversee implementation in West Wales of the Social Services and Wellbeing (Wales) Act. Users of care and support services also sit on the Board, along with carer representatives.
Developed in partnership with Data Unit Wales, the Portal contains an on-line version of our Area Plan, ‘Delivering Change Together’ and key facts from our first Population Assessment, undertaken in 2016-17. A range of performance, service and demographic data also features within the Portal, providing a useful tool for partners in planning services and monitoring the impact of the changes we are making.
‘A Healthier Wales: Our Plan for Health and Social Care’
In June 2018 Welsh Government published ‘A Healthier Wales’, which sets out a national programme for the ongoing transformation of health and social care. The Plan addresses key findings from the recent Parliamentary Review of Health and Care in Wales. £100 million will be available across Wales over the next two years via a Transformation Fund to support changes at national, regional and local level.
