Mental health: Health board apologises for woman’s care failings

A health board has apologised for failings in the care of an elderly woman who was being treated at a mental health unit.

Jean Graves spent nine weeks at Ysbyty Gwynedd’s Hergest unit in 2013 after struggling with anxiety and depression.

Her son said she was left “severely malnourished” and a watchdog said there were several failings in her care.

Betsi Cadwaladr health board has issued a “sincere apology”, including for how concerns were dealt with.
