  • Supporting Mental Health and Wellbeing, including continuing investing in additional counselling services
  • Looking at new ways to access diagnostics, including Phlebotomy and Radiology
  • Pioneering new chronic conditions management, including Diabetes and Leg Ulcer services

  • Tackling long term health and wellbeing, including targeting obesity and smoking cessation
What we have already done

Dwyfor Cluster Network Action Plan 2018 / 2020 
Cluster funds have enabled pharmacy sessions to be provided across clusters in the West. Advanced Clinical Pharmacists are undertaking hypertension clinics across clusters and also undertaking medication reviews within care homes across the area.

Similarly, cluster funds have supported the appointment of Musculo-Skeletal Advance Physiotherapist sessions in clusters across the West area to support increased demand on GPs

Future Priorities for the Cluster

Implement an ANP led Home Visiting Service within the Dwyfor cluster
