Medicines Strategy for Wales

2018-2023

This document sets out a five-year strategy for AWMSG, aligned with Welsh Government’s Prudent Healthcare initiative, and the principles outlined in Taking Wales Forward and Prosperity for All: the national strategy. The principles of Prudent Healthcare will only be achieved by working in partnership with many organisations to deliver a medicines strategy in Wales that promotes safe and effective prescribing practice. The recommendations made in this strategy are aligned to these principles to ensure healthcare fits the needs and circumstances of patients and avoids wasteful care.
