The former Chief Executive of Abertawe Bro Morgannwg University Health Board has offered his "profound regret and sincere apologies" following this week's damning report into poor care at Neath Port Talbot and Princess of Wales hospitals.
I was saddened to read the ‘Trusted to Care’ report produced by Professor June Andrews and Mark Butler.
It highlights unacceptable standards of care provided, in particular, to elderly patients. Particularly distressing were the examples of care being given without sensitivity or compassion.
I must offer my own profound regret and sincere apologies. I am sure action will now be taken to ensure rapid, necessary improvement.
