Plaid Cymru has responded to clinicians's claims that A&E services in the Welsh NHS are at ‘meltdown point’, claiming that they're a sign of deep-rooted problems that the new Health Minister needs to tackle urgently.
Labour Health Ministers have failed to take a strong hold of the NHS, and ensure that it is delivering safe services for the people of Wales. Clinicians, health organisations and patients have been telling us for many months that there are serious failings in the current system, and it seems that key NHS targets are routinely missed.
Often, over-dependence on A&E services is the result of failures elsewhere. Plaid Cymru has called for immigration rules to be changed to encourage more doctors to work in Wales, and better incentives to ensure that doctors who train in Wales stay in Wales.
Plaid Cymru's also called for Health Boards to be made directly accountable to the Assembly Health Committee for their spending, so that a system of regular monitoring can be established.
