Abertawe Bro Morgannwg University Health Board says it welcomes the Welsh Government's review, and says another external review is already scheduled to begin next week.
ABM University Health Board already has a number of robust and pro-active measures underway to maximise the delivery of safe and high quality care for patients at the Princess of Wales Hospital; and already these actions are producing positive results.
Up to date mortality rate figures indicate that the hospital is now in line with other hospitals in Wales. In addition, mortality rates for patients with fractured hips - which were higher than expected - now compare with the best in the UK.
We have also had some very positive feedback from patients and relatives.
A spokesperson says a 'Quality and Safety Programme' has been set up at the Princess of Wales Hospital, adding that a nursing team from the hospital have recently won a UK-wide award.
The external review being arranged by Welsh Government also involves Neath Port Talbot Hospital.
We accept that there were issues around the care of an individual patient while she was an inpatient at Neath Port Talbot Hospital for a brief time and these clearly must be addressed.
However there are not high numbers of complaints about Neath Port Hospital generally, and the main category involves access/appointment issues rather than poor care.
