    May update postponed until 14th June 2017

    Following the recent International Cyber Incident, which is affecting the NHS, there will be a delay in publishing the latest version of Health Maps Wales.

The latest version of Health Maps Wales will be re-published on 14th June 2017. Please note the site will be unavailable on Tuesday 13th June to enable the update. NHS Wales Informatics Service apologies for any inconvenience caused. Please find details of the release below.
