Taking Care of the Carers? How NHS bodies supported staff wellbeing during the COVID-19 pandemic

The Auditor General for Wales published this short commentary in October 2021 which flowed from Audit Wales’s NHS structured assessment work. The commentary considered the importance of supporting staff well-being and describes how NHS bodies have supported the well-being of their staff during the pandemic, with a particular focus on their arrangements for safeguarding staff at higher risk from COVID-19. 


The majority of the recommendations are targeted at local bodies but Recommendations ’s 7 and 8 are directed at the Welsh Government.


The Welsh Government responded to the Auditor General in November 2021.


The Public Accounts & Public Administration Committee will consider this Report in Autumn 2021.
