“The latest in the long line of newly appointed Chief Executives for Betsi Cadwaladr Health Board will be joining a ship that’s already been torpedoed by Labour Government inaction.
“I’m speaking with more and more staff and patients who believe we’d be better off with a clean sheet. A new model for delivering health and care in the north of Wales. And I agree.”
