Health and Social Care: Priorities for the Sixth Senedd



The Health and Social Care Committee has been set up by the Senedd to look at policy and legislation, and to hold the Welsh Government to account on specific issues. This includes the physical, mental and public health and well-being of the people of Wales, including the social care system.


Between July and September 2021 the Committee asked people and organisations to share their views on the most important issues and priorities for health and social care during the Sixth Senedd. The Committee received 139 responses.


The Committee used the responses to develop a strategy for the Sixth Senedd.


The Committee published its strategy for the Sixth Senedd and a summary in December 2021. A web-based version is also available.


The strategy sets out an ambitious vision for health and social care over the next five years, and how Committee members will work together. It identifies cross-cutting themes that will be embedded across the Committee’s work, and identifies priority issues.


The strategy will guide and shape the Committee’s work, but will not constrain its ability to be flexible or responsive to emerging issues.
