Inquiry into the impact of the Covid-19 outbreak, and its management, on health and social care in Wales

 

The Health, Social Care and Sport Committee is undertaking an inquiry into the impact of the Covid-19 outbreak, and its management, on health and social care in Wales.

 

The inquiry will consider the impact of the outbreak, and its management, on health and social care services in Wales. As part of this, the Committee will examine the response by the Welsh Government and relevant public bodies, as well as considering the impact on staff, patients and others receiving care or treatment in both clinical settings and the community. It will also consider the Wales response in the wider, UK context.

 

The Committee is keen to hear from anyone with an interest in this inquiry.
