The UK Government has once again launched a scathing attack on the Welsh Health Service today, saying "Offa's Dyke is now the line between life and death."
It comes on the same day as a report into the health services in the different nations of the UK which finds that, on the whole, there is not a great difference between them - although it does point to a decline in funding which has led to worsening waiting times in Wales in the last four years.
So with the health service in Wales being bandied around as a political football, how has it affected those on the frontline - the patients who use it, and the staff who work within it?
