Welsh Conservatives: patient neglect review 'falls short'

While an investigation into standards of care in Abertawe Bro Morgannwg University Health Board is welcome following the appalling neglect of an elderly and vulnerable patient, this falls far short of the full Keogh-style inquiry the Welsh NHS needs.

We urgently need a robust Wales-wide inquiry into standards of patient care and high death rates in our hospitals to identify failings and put them right to prevent another Mid Staffs scandal.

Carwyn Jones’ Labour Government must listen to calls for a Keogh-style inquiry from frontline NHS staff, respected health campaigners like Ann Clwyd and Welsh patients to prevent any more vulnerable people from suffering horrific neglect and mistreatment.

– Darren Millar AM, Shadow Minister for Health
