Betsi Cadwaladr UHB 'disappointed' in motion outcome

Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board says it is 'very disappointed' at news that Conwy Council has passed a motion of no confidence against it.

The board added it has 'a long history of successful collaborative working' with the authority.

We have jointly delivered many schemes over the years for the benefit of local people, such as the joint facility at Canolfan Crwst, and health and social care teams working together in the community to prevent hospital admissions which has improved support for patients and carers. Irrespective of the decision taken by the Council today we are committed to continue to work collaboratively with them, in the best interests of local people.
