Gwent NHS to get £10 million boost
11:40am Wednesday 5th December 2012 in Campaign news
THE NHS in Gwent will receive a £10 million funding boost from the Welsh Government to help deal with increased hospital admissions, overstretched A&E departments, and other pressures.
The money is coming from an £82m package of contingency funding for the NHS across Wales, announced by health minister Lesley Griffiths.
Rising emergency admissions, particularly among over-85s, risks disruption to planned services, such as routine operations, and Mrs Griffiths said the money will "allow the NHS to manage current pressures and maintain quality of care."
