Do you use healthcare services in Wales?

Do you have something to say about how healthcare education should be designed and delivered in Wales? Join Healthcare Education Improvement Wales (HEIW) and Diverse Cymru to talk about future healthcare education in Wales. Healthcare Education Improvement Wales (HEIW) are currently in the process of looking at the contracts we have with the universities that provide healthcare training for us and would really value your input as a service user of the NHS.

This event is your chance to talk about:

  • What should healthcare professionals be taught?
  • How does healthcare education change your experiences of using health services?
  • What equality and diversity issues should healthcare professionals know?
  • How patients should be involved in healthcare education?
  • What would you need a course to cover and look like for you to be able to train as a healthcare professional?
  • Anything else you think should be in the new healthcare education contracts

Your views will help design the new education contracts in Wales.

This event is for diverse individuals and community groups and third sector organisations.

Orchard Trees for Cardiff

CLAS Cymru have recently submitted a capital funding Expression of Interest bid to Welsh Government to fund a programme of community led orchards across Wales for 2020 – 2021. It is an exciting proposal with plans for over 3600 community delivered orchard trees across Wales before March 2021.

They included a proposal for 600 trees across Cardiff partly because of the publication of the new Sustainable Food Plan for Cardiff and its aim of developing a clear plan for food growing in spaces where the Council has control; and partly because we aware of a number of community led opportunities across the city.

If you are aware of any community or school led green space projects that would value some orchard trees (and where they have the ability to maintain the trees going forward) please Email Lucie on This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
