Using Coronavirus as an unprecedented opportunity to transform health and care services in Wales


Does the Coronavirus pandemic provide an opportunity to transform health and care services in Wales?

This is the question explored by Bevan Commissioner Sir Paul Williams in a new thought piece which reflects on how the Coronavirus outbreak is creating opportunities for new ways of working in the NHS and beyond.

Sir Paul has a long and distinguished career in the NHS. He was Chief Executive of three NHS trusts and is a former Chief Executive Officer of NHS Wales and Director General for Health and Social Services, Welsh Government.

The article is the first in a series of reflections from members of Wales’ leading health and care think tank the Bevan Commission.

The Commission, hosted and supported by Swansea University, brings together a group of international health and care experts to provide independent, authoritative advice to the Welsh Government and leaders in Wales, the UK and beyond.

During these unprecedented times, the Commission will be following the coronavirus pandemic closely and providing further advice as necessary. It will also be providing a series of thought pieces and wider analysis as the situation unfolds.
