Wales' ground-breaking new IT system for health and social care has been switched on by Bridgend County Borough Council.
This was the first implementation of the new Welsh Community Care Information System (WCCIS) system and the start of a process that will pave the way for Wales' other 21 local authorities and seven health boards.
When fully implemented across Wales It will overcome the obstacles posed when organisations use different IT systems by securely storing important information covering a range of issues such as community nursing, health and social care visits, mental health, learning disabilities, substance misuse, complex care needs or social care therapy.
Besides support for the system's procurement, NHS Wales Informatics Service is working with councils and health boards to manage the core infrastructure and to coordinate implementation plans and dates.
WCCIS is made possible through £6.5 million funding from Welsh Government.
