Healthcare in Wales

Healthcare in Wales is mainly provided by the Welsh public health service, NHS Wales. NHS Wales provides healthcare to all permanent residents that is free at the point of need and paid for from general taxation. Health is a matter that is devolved, and considerable differences are now developing between the public healthcare systems in the different countries of the United Kingdom.[1] Though the public system dominates healthcare provision, private health care and a wide variety of alternative and complementary treatments are available for those willing to pay.

The largest hospital in the country is the University Hospital of Wales hospital.

NHS trusts and health boards

Before 2009, Wales was divided into 10 NHS trusts:

Welsh Ambulance Services NHS Trust manages all ambulance services in Wales from its base in Denbighshire.
