The Welsh Government says there have been 'signs of progress' at a struggling north Wales health board.
Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board was placed in special measures in June following "long-standing concerns".
The Welsh Government said "significant steps" have been taken in each of the five areas highlighted as part of the special measures – governance, leadership and oversight; mental health services; maternity services at Ysbyty Glan Clwyd; GP and primary care, including out of hour services and reconnecting with the public in North Wales.
It confirmed the health board will remain in special measures "for the foreseeable future".
But Shadow Health Minister Darren Millar said "little appears to have changed", adding: "“The people of north Wales are fed up with apologies and excuses for failure. Hard working staff, patients and their loved ones want to see progress and improvement."
