Following the publication of a report into Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board by former head of the Welsh NHS Ann Lloyd, North Wales Assembly Member Aled Roberts AM has called for a radical improvements to be made.
Welsh Lib Dem Mr Roberts said: “It’s incredibly depressing to read yet another damning report into this failing health board.
“This report paints a picture of a health board that has completely lost control.
“It is not surprising that staff sickness remains so high when we read of a prevalent bullying culture. It’s time that those involved had a long hard look at themselves and consider their positions. All members of staff should be held to account and that should start from the top.
“Whether it is postponing procedures, waiting lists growing ever higher, and of course major problems about the quality and safety of mental health units, it’s clear that patients in North Wales have been let down badly.
“People in North Wales are fed up of hearing these bad news stories and having to put up with poor treatment. The Welsh Liberal Democrats aspire for an NHS where everyone is treated with respect, dignity and in a timely fashion. That’s not asking for much and is the very least that people deserve.”
