Wales’s biggest health board has been told a “major improvement is necessary” after getting a food hygiene rating of only one, out of five, at a community hospital.
An inspection at Denbigh Infirmary in north Wales found that major improvement was needed in the system:
to ensure that food sold or served is safe to eat, evidence that staff know about food safety, and the food safety officer has confidence that standards will be maintained in future.
The rating is even worse than those of two for the major Glan Clwyd Hospital, near Rhyl, also run by Betsi Cadwaladr Health Board.

A final report will be published today detailing how much Assembly Members will be paid next year.
An independent panel has proposed a pay increase of 18% from £54,000 to £64,000.

The Welsh Government says it is investing an extra £7.6m every year in mental health services for children and young people in Wales.
The additional funding will help improve specialist child and adolescent mental health services’ (CAMHS) ability to respond out of hours and at times of crisis; expand access to psychological therapies for young people; improve provision for children and young people in local primary mental health support services and ensure services intervene early to meet the needs of young people who develop psychosis.
A considerable amount of work is now underway to move CAMHS forward. I have always been clear that money alone is not the answer for all the challenges facing the NHS, but the changes we are seeking to make to these services are the most significant for many years and ensuring appropriate resources are available will help to achieve the right outcomes for children and young people
