“The Compassionate Leadership Principles point the way to leading and working compassionately together across health and social care which is the most powerful way we can nurture the health and happiness of the staff who offer care in Wales. It is also the most powerful way we can promote the health and happiness of the people and communities of Wales now and in the future”.
