I welcome the news that the Welsh Conservatives and the Welsh Conservative Senedd Members will be joining my fight for better healthcare services in North Wales. As healthcare is devolved to the Welsh Government in Cardiff, it is important that the Welsh Conservative Senedd Members are part of the fight: they have the power to scrutinise the Welsh Government in the Senedd and I am pleased that they are now onboard.
In a statement following further troubling news about the local health board, the Shadow Minister for Health, Russell George MS, said:
"Less than ten days ago the Chair of Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board said that they needed to learn from the experience of vascular services, so they don't repeat the same mistakes.
"However, after six years of Betsi being under a constant spot-light the Health Board and the Labour Government are not learning from their mistakes or the experiences of patients and NHS professionals.
"The people of North Wales deserve a Health Board that delivers first class care, and the Labour Health Minister needs to take responsibility and give leadership to resolve the myriad of problems. Less talk, more action from a Labour Government that has abandoned the people of North Wales."
