Funding of £10 mill will be available to the 64 primary care clusters in Wales for 2016-17, the Welsh Government has announced. It will help the clusters - “groups of GPs, working with other healthcare professionals, including pharmacists, dentists, optometrists, therapists, nurses social workers, third sector workers and others” - to build on the work started with last year’s funding of £6 million.

The money is part of the £43 million announced for primary care this year. Some £26 million will be available to health boards to help implement local plans, and to help move more services out of hospitals and into local communities.

Health and Social Services Minister Mark Drakeford commented: “Our vision for primary care is for more services to be delivered in local communities, closer to people’s homes, with care being delivered by a range of skilled healthcare professionals working together as a team.

“The £43 million primary care fund for 2016-17 builds on the significant multi-million pound investment we have made in recent years. It will focus on service sustainability, improving access and to moving more services out of hospitals into primary care.

“I am particularly pleased to be able to make £10 million – an extra £4 million this year – which will be allocated directly to Wales’ 64 primary care clusters, to support their development and boost local primary care services.”
