In response to the publication of a list of 24 medical blunders which have occurred over the last four years, a Welsh Government spokesperson said
Every year, thousands of patients receive high-quality, safe and effective treatment but we have to recognise that in a modern health system – where increasingly complicated procedures are being undertaken –very rarely, things do not go as well as we would wish.
We expect NHS organisations in Wales to be open and report 'Never Events' as well as other patient safety incidents. In doing so, we can learn lessons and reduce the risk of them happening again. We expect all 'Never Events' and serious patient safety incidents to be thoroughly investigated by NHS organisations.
