Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board (BCUHB) has been accused of spending more money on a management consultant than it would save by cutting paid breaks for nursing staff. The health board confirmed it was paying £1,990 a day for an “interim recovery director”. It described the sum as “market rate for this level of expertise”. It comes as nursing staff were told paid 30 minute shift breaks could be cut in a bid to save £25,000 a month. Plaid Cymru’s north Wales AM Llyr Gruffydd said it raised questions for board bosses.
