Vaughan Gething, Cabinet Secretary for Health and Social Services for the Welsh Government; has said Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board (BCUHB) had made progress since they were put in special measures in 2015. However he also referred to the mental healthcare service which still requires “urgent” attention. The health board has now been promised extra funding and new troubleshooters to boost performance. A former NHS boss will advise the board on governance, plus a new turnaround director and team will be hired. Mr Gething said the board continued to face “significant challenges” and needed extra support.
