New website is launched to help patients in Wales
PATIENTS will now have better access to NHS information thanks to a launch of a new website.
They will be able to find out more about healthcare infection rates, death rates and nurse ratios just by clicking onto mylocalhealthservice.wales.gov.uk
The new Welsh Government website also aims to offer information issues affecting people from heart disease to strokes.
First Minister Carwyn Jones, who launched the website, said: "We have made a firm commitment to transparency in the NHS. Gathering together key performance datasets into one place and explaining them clearly is part of our delivery on that commitment.
"The current site is just the start — we will continue to build on this initial information set, with more information provided over the coming months to make My Local Health Service our window on the performance of our local NHS services right across the country."
The website aims to raise quality of care in the NHS.
