Plaid Cymru calls for greater devolution of health services in Wales

Plaid Cymru has launched its election manifesto, demanding further devolution of health services from Westminster.

Think Different Think Plaid calls for all power over mental health to be devolved to the National Assembly in Wales.  

It reaffirms a commitment to ‘community wellbeing centres' and evening surgeries that the coalition assembly government has started to implement across Wales.

‘We want a health service built around the needs of our people and communities,' the party says.

‘We demand devolved powers to legislate on other health-related matters such as sunbeds, cigarette vending machines and the regulation of alcohol pricing.'

Plaid Cymru believes public services in Wales must be defended against cuts to their budgets from Westminster.
