An inquest into the deaths of six elderly patients at the 17-bed Tawel Fan unit, at Ysbyty Glan Clwyd has been opened and adjourned. The ward was closed down in December 2013 by the Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board amid claims of “deeply distressing” allegations about patient care. The assistant coroner for North Wales East and Central, Joanne Lees, revealed both she and senior coroner John Gittins had investigated the deaths of 88 dementia patients who stayed on ward which was closed after an initial report by Donna Ockenden claimed there had been ‘institutional abuse’ at Tawel Fan.
