Perinatal Mental Health – Follow-up

The Children, Young People and Education Committee is undertaking follow-up work on its inquiry into Perinatal Mental Health in Wales. The report was published in October 2017.

The Committee is keen to establish whether work undertaken since publication of the report (PDF, 1,888KB) has made, or is making, a difference.

The Committee has decided to:

  • invite the National Clinical Lead for PMH to give evidence at a formal committee meeting;
  • invite WHSSC and a representative from Swansea Bay University Health Board and Betsi Cadwaladr University Heath to give evidence at a formal committee meeting, in order to explore MBU provision in particular;
