Appeal: Help us improve the NHS

Last year, we asked you what you would like to improve about the NHS in Wales.

You told us that you wanted a better experience; more information about your appointments and your care. Specifically, you told us you wanted:

  1. Access to your notes and information about your care
  2. More information about delays to your appointments to avoid wasting time in hospital waiting rooms

We want to help you build the NHS you want, and work with you to find solutions to these common NHS problems.

Crowdfunding illos

The IWA’s new project ‘Helping Patients Change the NHS’ will aim to:

  • Bring patients and practitioners together to create solutions to these problems
  • Test patient ideas in hospital settings
  • Work to get the best of the patient ideas implemented across the NHS in Wales.

We are working with Cardiff and the Vale University Health Board and Aneurin Bevan University Health Board to test these ideas with the aim of getting them implemented across Wales.

We need your help to get our next project off the ground. We are just £300 short of being able to put people across Wales at the centre of a new project to change the NHS. Your donation would help make this project a reality.

We will provide regular updates on progress via our news page and social media outputs.

Why we need your help

The IWA is a registered charity (1078435) and an independent think tank dedicated to making Wales a better place to live and work.  

We are not aligned to any political party and receive no funding from the Government, and as such we’re uniquely placed to challenge Government.

We can’t organise this work without your help, we are writing to Trusts, asking our members and seeking crowdfunding to help us organise this project. Your donation will help us make this project a reality.

If you can’t provide funding support, please help in other ways, please tell other people about our campaign and ask others to spread the word or donate.
