Welsh Language Standards 

North Wales Community Health Council (NWCHC) have committed to comply with the Welsh Language Standards, that came in to force on 30 May 2019.  These Standards set clear expectations for the NWCHC to provide services in Welsh to the public, and to promote the use of the Welsh language through all the services

The Language Standards are divided into 5 different categories

  • Service Delivery
  • Policy Making
  • Operational
  • Record Keeping
  • Standards which deal with Supplementary Matters

NWCHC produce and publish annual reports on its compliance with the Welsh Language Standards, and report on developments in the organisation during the year to strengthen its Welsh language services.

Language Policy

The Board of Community  Health Council for Wales/ NWCHC have created a new Language Policy to ensure that NWCHC’s commitment to promoting and facilitating the Welsh language continues. The new Language Policy will outline how the NWCHC intends to comply with the Standards and how it will go about taking advantage of every opportunity to promote the use of Welsh language services. 

Language complaints

Any complaints relating to the NWCHC’s compliance with the Welsh Language Standards or a failure on the NWCHC’s part to provide a bilingual service will be reported to the Community Health Council’s Welsh Language Group, and follow the NWCHC’s complaints procedure.
