The Welsh Conservatives have reiterated their call for a major inquiry into the state of the NHS in Wales, similar to a high-profile one carried out in England.
Fourteen NHS trusts in England were investigated in an inquiry carried out by Professor Sir Bruce Keogh, England's NHS medical director, and a report published earlier this month.
It was set up following the Mid-Staffordshire Hospital scandal, where hundreds of patients died due to poor care.
This is now a hat-trick of catastrophic failings in three of Wales’ largest health boards.
How many more patients have to ‘die regularly’ before Labour’s Carwyn Jones acts and introduces a Keogh-style inquiry?
Substandard care in just one area should be enough to force consideration of this. The full scale of disturbing facts now published is proof that action is desperately needed.
The terrible findings of surgeons looking at Wales’ largest hospital are beyond worrying and similarities to the recent Mid Staffordshire scandal are distressing.
