More than 40 patients were harmed as a result of poor care on Ysbyty Glan Clwyd’s Tawel Fan Ward, a report has revealed – prompting calls for a public inquiry. According to the Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board’s annual “Putting Things Right” report, 42 out of a total 105 cases which were subject to individual patient reports were deemed “determined harm caused”, some 40% of the total.
