Cwm Taf services 'unaffected' say health council

Cwm Taf Community Health Council says it welcomes the health board's 'prompt action.' Dr Paul Worthington, the council's chief officer, said he has spoken to the health board and been reassured that the delivery of services was unaffected.

We are aware of the fact that an unexplained injury was sustained by a patient at Ysbyty Cwm Cynon. This is clearly a very serious issue and our thoughts and sincere condolences go to the family at this very sad time.

We welcome the prompt action by the health board in initiating the multi-agency review process to consider what happened. This swift response was both right and essential.

We are aware that staff are being interviewed as part of the ongoing process of investigation into the incident, and it would not be appropriate to comment in detail until that investigation is completed.

– Dr Paul Worthington, Cwm Taf Community Health Council
