The income includes £500,000 for village healthcare.

Peter Meredith-Smith, associate executive of a Royal College of Nursing (RCN), pronounced it had “argued for years” that “investment in village staffing infrastructure in Wales has not kept gait with changing models of caring opposite a country, with a change of caring from hospitals to village settings”.

He said: “Clearly it will take a few years for a full effects of this investment to entirely bear fruit, with a time-lag between a new income issuing into a complement and nurses completing their preparation and training.

“However, a impact of this proclamation on a spirit of front-line staff should not be under-estimated.”
