Abertawe Bro Morgannwg University Health Board offered their 'sincere condolences' to the family of a woman who died after a heart condition was not diagnosed promptly. An Ombudsman's report said the patient had suffered 'unreasonable delays'.
A woman who suffered a heart attack was not given any initial tests for 35 minutes and then waited for an hour before being seen by a senior doctor, according to a report by the Public Services Ombudsman. She then died at Singleton Hospital shortly after being diagnosed.
The Abertawe Bro Morgannwg University Health Board was ordered to apologise to the patient's family and to pay £5,000.
