Re-structure the management of hospitals to free up some much needed money to employ more nursing and midwifery staff. Some of us are training for 3 years and being used as staff whilst training and then get no job at the end of it, its is unfair!!
reduce number of managers , they have been responsible for failure of nhs.

Try to improve the hospitals you already have rather then spending public money on new hospitals and creating new committees to increase already too many managers.The money can be well spent on drugs patients need.
need to decrease number of managers , the more you increase the more they create budget deficit and problems

Why do there have to be 22 LHB's in Wales, 5 of those in Gwent commissioning services for one Trust? with 5 chief execs, 5 chairman, 5 nurse directors, 5 clinical directors, 5 finance directors, and 5 of every other post duplicated throughout the five boroughs of Gwent for one healthcare trust. Why do they not pool their resources and save the salaries of these duplicated posts and put the savings toward direct patient healthcare??
All my life (50 years) I've been a severe epileptic and twice in this last year I've had major fits within the University Hospital of Wales. Is the government underestimating the needs of epileptics? Apparently Wales receives the least ammount of funds for epilepsy treatment.
When are we going to realise that the NHS has run it's course. I would be very happy to opt out of the national insurance payment every month. Waiting more than a week to see a GP then 18 months for a consultant....I would be quite happy use that cash to pay a private health scheme, been seen immediately (probably by the same consultant)rather than dragging out any illness longer than necessary !!
Please Please, do not put any new hospital in to the city of Newport. One day last week I had to take a friend to RGH. from Cwmbran, which if there was no other cars etc on the road, would take 10 mines. Last week it took 55 mines and then another 30 to find some place to park. The RGH is past its time and Newport has no place in the placement of the new hospital.

I cannot thank the staff enough in university Hospital cardiff who are loking after my son
There's plenty to moan about the NHS for sure but I still think we have a pretty good deal compared to countries that have to pay for healthcare.
The waits in A&E have definitely improved in my experience.Though I'm fed up of having to make appointments to see my GP a full week ahead.
