The number of days lost due to staff stress at Betsi Cadwaladr University health board in north Wales last year was the highest ever recorded by the organisation.
Just under 77,000 staff days were lost in 2017 due to stress and anxiety, Freedom of Information figures reveal. They were published in the health board's FOI disclosure log.
It's estimated the lost days for 2017 cost the health board, which is currently in Welsh Government special measures, in excess of £5m.
The 2017 figure is a marked increase from 2016 when the number of days lost to stress and anxiety was approximately 65,000.
