Wales Needs an Emergency Social Care Plan

20 Apr 2023

Responding to Welsh Government statistics showing that ambulance response times are the second worst  on record ever, Welsh Liberal Democrat Leader Jane Dodds MS said:

“We cannot wait years for Labour and Plaid Cymru’s long-promised social care reforms. It has been almost 2 years since they agreed to tackle the issue together and yet we have seen no results or even concrete suggestions at this stage.

“People are dying now while waiting for an ambulance or in A&E because hospitals aren’t able to discharge patients into social care.

“We need to see the Welsh Government urgently set out an emergency plan to deal with the crisis in social care, it is only then will we see any real improvement in our A&E departments.”
