Vanessa Young, Director of the Welsh NHS Confederation, said: “Today’s figures, which show nearly 80,000 people attended A&E departments across Wales in November, demonstrate the level of demand being placed on the health service. We know NHS Wales faces a number of challenges when it comes to meeting these levels of demand, especially during winter months where many of the patients who require care, treatment and support have increasingly complex needs. 

“Our members will continue to work hard to meet people’s needs throughout the winter period and beyond, but we would also encourage people to work with us by choosing the right service when they are unwell and by taking whatever action they can to improve their own health and wellbeing."
