According to a report by Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board, the number of patients developing potentially fatal infections in north Wales hospitals is still too high.

In 2013 the health board came in for fierce criticism for its handling of a serious outbreak of 'superbug' Clostridium Difficile at Glan Clwyd Hospital.

The report also found that improvements are needed across a wide range of key clinical practice standards if they are to lower the number of people diagnosed with Clostridium Difficile and MRSA.
