Politicians warn that new CEO of special measures health board won’t be a ‘silver bullet’

Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board has been under high level monitoring from the Welsh government since June 2015, following a report  by Donna Ockenden which found evidence of “institutional abuse” at the Tawel Fan mental health ward at Ysbyty Glan Clwyd in Denbighshire. The board has now announced that Jo Whitehead will be taking over the reins as Chief Executive.

Shadow Health Minister Andrew RT Davies said: “History has taught us that changing the name plate on the CEO’s door at Betsi Cadwaladr is not a silver bullet to solving the problems at the health board.”
