Campaigner ‘mystified’ over staff changes in north Wales psychiatric services after patient deaths

The son of a woman who was treated on a beleaguered mental health unit in North Wales says he is “mystified” by the removal of members of staff following the deaths of two patients.

David Graves’ mother was placed on the controversial Hergest Unit for psychiatric care in Ysbyty Gwynedd in 2013.

He believes that recent steps taken by Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board in the wake of two patient deaths “seem to ignore the blindingly obvious conclusions” from reports that point to other decisions leading to “tragic loss of life and harm to the most vulnerable patients.”
