Wales UK Advisory Forum


Our Wales UK Advisory Forum helps us make sure our regulatory approach takes into account the needs and the characteristics of the Welsh healthcare system.

The forum offers us an extra channel to engage with our partners and key interest groups in the country. Through the forum we share and discuss early stage views on policy development. This allows us to focus on medium and long-term priorities in dialogue with our partners.

We also run UK Advisory Forums in Scotland and Northern Ireland.
