NHS Confederation - The NHS in Wales continues to be under extreme pressure

Nesta Lloyd - Jones, Assistant Director of the Welsh NHS Confederation responded to the latest Welsh Government update on the Coronavirus pandemic in Wales 

“The NHS in Wales continues to be under extreme pressure. The number of people in our hospitals suffering from Coronavirus, many of them in critical care, is significant.

“It is vitally important that we bring the number of cases in our communities down, which will in turn have a positive effect on the number of people in our hospitals and the number of people who are tragically dying with Coronavirus.

“Today, the Health Minister showed some encouraging signs of case levels dropping in Wales, but it is yet to be seen whether these gains are going to be sustained over the next couple of weeks.

“There is some light at the end of the tunnel with the approval of the Oxford Vaccine and the NHS in Wales stands ready to deliver the biggest vaccination programme we’ve ever undertaken. However, we cannot underestimate the scale of that challenge, particularly in the face of a high number of cases and hospitalisations in Wales.

“Staff are continuing to work around the clock to provide care for people in Wales. Their continued dedication throughout such a long period of time and in extremely difficult circumstances is nothing short of remarkable.”
