Suppressed Holden Report reveals “chasm” between senior healh bosses and frontline ward staff 

A damning report about a mental health unit that a Betsi Cadwaladr health board kept under wraps for eight years has finally been published – years after Plaid Cymru first called for its release.

It reveals that 42 staff on Hergest Unit in Bangor complained about bullying and intimidation by senior management, lack of staff and poor care standards that were left unaddressed for years.

The whistleblowers came forward to make their complaints after a death on Hergest but practices were not changed sufficiently to prevent further deaths on the unit.
