Welsh Levels of Care

The Welsh Levels of Care are a key component of the operational guidance developed for the Nurse Staffing Levels (Wales) Act 2016.

The Welsh Levels of Care set out descriptions of patients across five archetypal levels of care, from routine and simple to critical and unpredictable. These descriptions are broken down into typical patient needs, conditions and situations and the corresponding clinical assessments, interventions and tasks undertaken by nurses.
