Welsh Government to Increase Use of Welsh Language in GP Surgeries


The Welsh Government is pushing for GP practices to ensure that Welsh-speaking staff are available to patients who need them and providing ongoing advice to surgeries to promote the Welsh language.

It has said it will complete a review of IT systems before the end of the year to ensure that GPs are logging patients’ preferences for consultations or communications in Welsh.

The details were outlined in a circular sent to GPs and other health professionals this month.

Welsh Government officials say they will engage with professional bodies such as the BMA over the next seven months to plan how Welsh language services can be delivered more effectively by doctors.
