Former leader of Plaid Cymru Ieuan Wyn Jones, who's now the party's finance spokesperson, has waded into the row over the Welsh Government's claims that local health boards have met their financial targets.
This is an astounding attempt by the Labour Welsh government to mislead us into thinking that our LHBs have stayed within budget. I’ve been raising the financial mismanagement of some LHBs for months – and now the Welsh Government has had to bail them out again. A few months ago when the last massive financial bailout was made, Labour ministers gave assurances that they would bring this situation under control, but they have clearly failed. Now, this new £12m bailout will just mean less money for next year.
“Labour now intends to downgrade hospitals and centralise core services rather than get to grips with the financial mismanagement that is causing these problems.”
