The Health Technology Wales Stakeholder Forum meets twice a year, and includes representatives from across Wales’ health and social care sectors. It was set up to ensure that HTW understood the views of stakeholders and enabled them to influence its work in identifying, evaluating and adopting care technologies that could improve the lives of patients in Wales. As well as supporting HTW’s programme of work, the forum will provide guidance on priorities for care services in Wales.
