Health board Chairman to stand down after report

The Chairman of Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board is standing down after a report found failings which put patient's safety at risk.

Under the circumstances, I believe it is appropriate that I stand down as Chairman of Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board, and I have informed the Minister of my intention to do so as soon as appropriate alternative arrangements are in place.

There are many fundamental challenges for the Board but I am confident that these will be responded to positively to deliver the necessary improvements and I shall continue to contribute fully during this transitional period.

– Prof Merfyn Jones, Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board Chairman
