We are restructuring to achieve more with less resource at the regional tiers, and because we want a higher proportion of available resources to be spent on direct service delivery. The cost of the reorganisation will be contained within existing budgets. We are not yet in a position to say what the exact effect on costs in Wales will be, but we anticipate that there will be some efficiency-savings created from the removal of duplicated processes in areas such as planning, resource allocation and performance management.
