The RDC Programme has defined a data set which is currently being used by health boards offering an RDC service.
Further work is under way to develop a National RDC Dashboard which will automatically collate and present this information. This will enable the WCN and health boards to monitor RDC services across Wales, drive innovation and improve the care pathway of those patients presenting with vague symptoms.
An external evaluation of the RDC programme will be undertaken in 2023. This evaluation will measure the impact of the national programme, assess the 'nationally-driven and locally-delivered” approach and it will provide key conclusions and recommendations to support the sustainability of RDCs across Wales.
