The Bevan Commission is Wales’ leading health and care think tank

We challenge, change and champion thinking and practice to ensure sustainable health and care that is fit for the future.

Bevan Commission programmes are underpinned by the four principles of prudent healthcare

Developed and tested by the Bevan Commission in 2013, the prudent principles sit at the heart of the Welsh Government’s long-term plan for a healthier Wales. The principles will help ensure that Wales and other nations have health and care systems that best meet the needs of their citizens.

Illness is neither an indulgence for which people have to pay, nor an offence for which they should be penalised, but a misfortune, the cost of which should be shared by the community.
