Delivering health services that are fit for purpose in Wales is a huge task.

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.
