The Health Minister, Mark Drakeford has responded to a report by the Wales audit Office in which the NHS in Wales is shown not to have overspent in 2012/13.
I am very pleased the WAO report recognises the achievement of the NHS in living within its budget in 2012/13.
The report recognises what it describes as the bleak financial position facing Welsh public services. Successive cuts in the funding available to the Welsh Government cannot be ignored.
Despite this very difficult set of circumstances the report outlines the Welsh NHS remains remarkably resilient. Even in challenging times, performance can improve.
