The NHS and social services across Wales gathers a wide range of data that is essential to provide safe, effective health and care services. This vast collection of data means that it is important that we not only ensure that there are robust systems in place to manage data securely, but also make better use of data to improve decision making, plan change and drive improvements in quality and performance.
