Janet Finch-Saunders, Shadow Minister for Social Care, has put pressure on the First Minister to address the “decay” in the Welsh Government’s Gwên am Byth oral health improvement scheme. This followed her finding that around 4,600 care homes residents participating in the scheme did not have a mouth care health plan in place for the year ending March 2019.
For the reporting year ending March 2019 there were 10,228 residents in the 287 homes participating fully in the Gwên am Byth programme. Of these 55% (5,670 residents) had a mouth care plan being delivered.
