Of course we expect discussion on the day to reflect the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on primary care in Wales, on those working in or alongside primary care, and on the communities, individuals and households it serves. 

In this context, we expect discussion on areas such as:

  • what can be learned from innovation in practice and delivery, and service adaptation during the crisis that can be taken forward,
  • extra support that may be needed into the future for elements of primary care services and service users - particularly in vulnerable groups,
  • how primary care will need to develop in terms of resilience and planning in the wake of the pandemic, and
