The Welsh health minister has set out a revised list of expectations required for Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board (BCUHB) to finally exit special measures. The health board has been under the highest level of Welsh Government monitoring for around four-and-a-half years following a damning report into failings on the Tawel Fan mental health ward. Vaughan Gething announced that the region’s maternity services and GP out-of-hours have been stepped down as special measures concerns after recent progress. However, he also called for urgent improvements in several outstanding areas, including the number of patients facing lengthy waits in A&E departments.
