More than just words - Strategic Framework for Welsh Language Services in Health, Social Services and Social Care

We are committed to delivering a high quality health, social services and social care service that is centred on users’ needs.
Start of consultation: 08/02/2012
End of consultation: 30/04/2012

We aim to provide a service that will satisfy needs of Welsh speakers and their families or carers. This will ensure that they are able to receive services in their own language throughout the care process.

The Minister and the Deputy Minister established an independent group. It  developed a three year Strategic Framework for Welsh language services in health and social services.

The framework is built on the values embodied in health, social services and social care: 

  • all users should be treated with dignity and respect, and should 
  • receive accurate assessments and appropriate, effective care.

We are seeking comments and views from stakeholders, partners and the public on the draft Strategic Framework and Action Plans. Register to attend one of the consultation events.
