Since 2016 more than £8 million has been spent on preventing suicide and improving surroundings at mental health wards in North Wales. Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board (BCUHB) has been using external contractors to carry out work to prevent the use of ligatures by hospital patients. It includes the installation of doors fitted with vision panels with dual controls for patient and staff, as well as other alterations to doors and bathrooms. Money for the work has been provided by the Welsh Government.
