Conservatives: Full inquiry needed into Welsh NHS

The Welsh Conservatives have reiterated their calls for a full inquiry into the levels of care across the NHS in Wales, after today's report into 'unacceptable' levels of care for older people at two hospitals.

Andrew RT Davies has demanded an inquiry similar to that carried out by NHS England Medical Director Sir Bruce Keogh into the Mid Staffordshire NHS Foundation Trust, where hundreds of patients were believed to have died due to poor standards of care over many years.
