The Health and Social Care Committee oversees Welsh Government actions and spending and scrutinises draft laws, in relation to physical, mental and public health, and the well-being of the people of Wales, including the social care system.

The Committee has launched an ARI on innovation for improvement in healthcare. The Committee is interested in learning how the NHS could harness the power of emerging technologies to improve patient diagnosis, treatment and care. The Committee would like to hear from researchers working to develop new therapeutic approaches and the use of new technologies that could help to drive innovation in healthcare Wales.

Academics at all career stages, research institutions, and experts are encouraged to register their interest in the ARI, add their existing research in the topic areas to the ARI repository, provide their insights, and suggest questions that the Committee could ask the Welsh Government.

Those who respond to the survey will be entered onto a database of experts who may be contacted by Senedd staff to help them support the Committee to scrutinise the Welsh Government in this areas of interest. There is no need to contact committee staff directly, as they have access to all information you enter on the database.

The Committee will use the information gathered through the ARI repository to scope and support its future work.
