What advice is Welsh Government giving to those GP surgeries and communities where coronavirus video consultations are not possible due to a lack of broadband connectivity?

Answered by Minister for Health and Social Services | Answered on 20/03/2020

The Welsh Government is working on a daily basis with the TEC Cymru Programme to support the accelerated rollout of the National Video Consultations Service, which I announced last week. To ensure the infrastructure required for video consultations is in place, NHS Wales Informatics Service has already increased network and remote working capacity, including increased bandwidth which will benefit all NHS services.
