The Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh are proud to be one of twenty-two organisations who have come together to try to end the ‘postcode lottery’ by endorsing a document calling for an independent NHS Wales Executive. By switching from the current system to an independent Executive, improvements within the Welsh NHS can be driven, improving the standard of care and treatment received by everyone in Wales.

The document states that “While there is clearly a role for local solutions, health boards simply do not seem able to find a way of making big strategic change across boundaries and specialties. It is time to improve patient care locally, supported by national direction and oversight from a body that is politically and strategically independent of government.”
