Winter Protection Plan for Wales to be published
Health Minister Vaughan Gething will today publish the Winter Protection Plan, outlining the preparations being made by NHS and social care services for this winter.
The plan has a focus on responding to Covid-19, including extra bed capacity, changing the way services are delivered, expanding the flu vaccination programme and the role the public can play to help prevent the spread of the virus.
