Winter Preparedness

Winter Preparedness

Demand for health services fluctuates seasonally, with winter typically seeing heightened demand for services combined with challenges such as adverse weather, infectious and viral outbreaks and the exacerbation of chronic medical conditions. In response to this increased demand it is essential to develop a comprehensive plan to reduce the likelihood of winter factors impacting negatively on patients and the public.

Each year the UHB does this by working with partner organisations – Welsh Ambulance, our two local authorities and the third sector - to develop an integrated winter preparedness and resilience plan for the Cardiff and Vale of Glamorgan region.
