About NHS Wales
Patients in Wales come into contact with the NHS some 20 million times each year, with 80% of contacts taking place outside of a hospital.
Every year, NHS Wales also undertakes more than 700,000 first out-patient appointments, more than 600,000 inpatient and day-cases, and more than 1m people are seen in Accident & Emergency departments.
More than 70,000 people are directly employed by NHS Wales - making the health service Wales' largest employer. The health service offers over 200 career opportunities: everything from pharmacists to paramedics, gynaecologists to clinical engineers, and radiographers to midwives.
We invest £6bn a year, or 40 per cent of its budget – the largest single budget – in health and social services. Much of this is directly allocated to the Local Health Boards and Trusts.
