A Plaid Cymru AM says the Welsh Government has been too slow to act when health boards have problems and claimed that at least one other should be under the special measures now being imposed on the Betsi Cadwaladr Board in north Wales. Speaking on Sharp End, Bethan Jenkins said similar action should have taken against the Abertawe Bro Morgannwg University Health Board, which covers Swansea, Neath Port Talbot and Bridgend.
I think we should be looking at health in a more national way. In ABMU, at the Princess of Wales and Neath Port Talbot hospitals, we've had problems and they should have been put in special measures too. The health minister has to be more responsible going forward for the actions of various health boards rather than trying to wash his hands of those decisions.
Bethan Jenkins said she has repeatedly called for an wider inquiry into the Welsh NHS.
Plaid Cymru leader Leanne Wood has said she's pleased with her party's performance in the General Election, claiming Plaid has now laid promising foundations ahead of next year's Welsh Assembly elections.
Plaid held on to their three seats and came close to taking Ynys Môn from Labour - but missed out by 229 votes.
Critics, however, will argue Plaid should've performed better, given their leader's high profile exposure on TV leader's debates.
