Our commitment to Welsh language speakers

We are committed to enhancing our Welsh language provision in line with the compliance notice issued by the Welsh Language Commissioner. 

Compliance will help us improve the level of Welsh language services that registrants and members of the public in Wales can expect to receive from us. 

As part of our commitment to the standards, we strive to dedicate a reasonable and proportionate amount of operational and knowledge resources to cater for the needs of Welsh language speakers, supporting our staff in achieving this task. 

In considering how to meet the standards, we also balance our responsibility to comply with our other legislative responsibilities as defined in the Medical Act and the Public Sector Equality Duty

Not all aspects of our work are in scope of the standards. However, when a service is in scope, we are committed to applying a principle of equality by not treating Welsh less favourably than English.
