– Spokesperson for Abertawe Bro Morgannwg University Health Board
We would like to take this opportunity to once again express our sincere condolences the family and friends of Mr Harris.
The Health Board fully accepts the recommendations of the Ombudsman and would like to take this opportunity to apologise to his partner publicly for our failings.
The safety and quality of care of all our patients is very important and the consent process is a crucial part of this. Although these tragic events involve one individual patient and one clinical team we recognise that it is something we can all learn from.
Abertawe Bro Morgannwg Health Board has received a damning report from the Public Services Ombudsman. The board has bee criticised over its care of a man who was operated on for a bowel complaint.
