Welsh Liberal Democrat leader Kirsty Williams has urged the Welsh Government to take the findings of Ann Clwyd's report seriously and not 'continue to stick its head in the sand.'
This review happened because the Coalition Government took Ann Clwyd’s harrowing story about the treatment of her husband seriously. Despite his mistreatment being in a Welsh hospital, the Coalition acknowledges that these problems are UK wide. Yet what has the Welsh Labour Government done? Nothing. Their inaction has been shameful.
While the Coalition Government is acting to improve health care in England, the Welsh Labour Government continues to pretend all is well. Things won’t improve until the Welsh Labour Government acknowledges the sheer scale of the problems our NHS faces.
– Kirsty Williams AM, Welsh Liberal Democrat leader
Ann Clwyd has explicitly said that that Wales is behind in ‘every instance’. If even one of Labour’s own MPs is saying this, surely the Welsh Labour Government should start listening.
