Aled responds to ‘truly appalling’ report

 “Many of the criticisms of the health board made in the report are all too familiar: weak management of departments, minutes not being kept and agreed actions not being implemented. We need to understand what action the Board has taken to date and what further measures will be taken to address these failings.”

Commenting on the report into concerns raised regarding the treatment of patients of Tawel Fan ward, Aled Roberts Welsh Lib Dem AM for North Wales said:

 “This report is truly appalling. 

 “While we must accept the decision by the CPS and Police not to bring any charges in the case I’m sure many of the families will be disappointed by the decision given the nature of allegations.  We must now allow the internal disciplinary investigation and procedures to be brought to a conclusion.  People must be held accountable for their actions.

 “Lessons from this horrifying episode must be learnt so that something like this is never allowed to happen again.  I very much welcome Betsi Cadwaladr Health Board’s decision to make the report public.
