Come clean on Betsi failures


Plaid Cymru AM urges Labour government to “put everything on the table”

The Party of Wales North Wales AM Llyr Gruffydd has called on the Labour Welsh Government and managers at Betsi Cadwaladr Health Board to “put everything on the table” and let people know about any on-going concerns that may be investigated.
Llyr Gruffydd outlined what he called a “catalogue of failings” at the health board, and said that the Labour Government should have acted sooner to bring an end to the failings.
The Party of Wales North Wales AM Llyr Gruffydd said:
“Betsi Cadwaladr Health Board has finally been put into special measures by the Welsh Government after the report into institutional abuse at the Tawel Fan ward came to light. But the Tawel Fan scandal was only the most recent in a long list of failures at the health board.“Since 2012, we have seen a catalogue of failings at the health board. I want to know if there are any other concerns that are being investigated. It’s time for the Labour Government in Wales to put everything on the table, and spell out what the problems are. Until patients can understand the full picture, they can’t have complete faith in the health board.“Plaid Cymru will continue to work to scrutinise the work of this government and be a strong voice for patients. But the government must be honest and transparent as it tries to raise standards of care in north Wales.”
