2. 24/7 Model

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Why?
There is a recognition that primary and community care services across Wales vary depending on the time of day and location.  This work stream looks to ensure that as far as possible, the primary care offer is consistent on a 24/7 and geographic basis.
