Welcome to the Value in Health National Programme


Value in Health is a national programme of work striving towards achieving a Value-Based Health Care approach across NHS Wales in support of Prudent Healthcare principles.
Our vision is to work collaboratively with organisations to improve the health outcomes that matter most to the people of Wales. 
We will support this by asking people about their health outcomes and by creating a data-driven system that seeks to provide timely and relevant information to citizens, clinical teams, and organisations. This should inform patient-centered decision-making and improve patient outcomes in a way that is financially sustainable.

The image shows the 4 prudent healthcare principles – equal partners through co-production, care for those with the greatest need first, do only what is needed and reduce inappropriate variation through evidence based approaches.
