Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board to exit special measures with “immediate effect”
Welsh Government have announced Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board will come out ‘special measures’ with “immediate effect”.
The escalation status has now moved to targeted intervention.
The health board entered the special measures back in June 2015, due to “serious and outstanding concerns about leadership, governance and progress” after ‘targeted intervention’ did not work.
When the board entered special measures, the then Health Minister Professor Mark Drakeford said it needed to improve:
- Governance, leadership and oversight
- Mental health services
- Maternity services at Ysbyty Glan Clwyd
- GP and primary care services, including out-of-hours services
- Reconnecting with the public and regaining the public’s confidence
As of November last year, when the last statement current Health minister Vaughan Gething made on the health board status, maternity services at Ysbyty Glan Clwyd and GP out of hours services had been taken out of Special Measures.
Today in a statement to the Senedd by the Health Minister, he announced the move.
