Community and district nursing services

Response to the consultation

Evidence submitted in response to this Consultation

Purpose of the consultation


The  Health, Social Care and Sport Committee welcomed your views on community and district nursing services in Wales.

Terms of reference:

The Health, Social Care and Sport Committee called for evidence about whether community nursing services are likely to play a greater role in the future delivery of healthcare, focusing on:

  • Whether we have a clear picture of the district nursing and community nursing workforce in Wales, and the level of need for community nursing services (including future need). Do we have the evidence base to support effective workforce planning.
  • Whether there is clear strategy, at national and local levels, about the future direction for district nurse-led community nursing services. How well aligned is this with the development of the primary care cluster model for example, and with the vision for health and care services set out in A Healthier Wales.
  • How effectively community nursing teams are able to work with a range of professionals and agencies (including primary and secondary care services, social care services, and the voluntary sector) to deliver seamless, person-centred care.


The deadline for responses was 8 March 2019.
