‘Poorly maintained’ University Hospital of Wales indicative of gross mismanagement of the Wales NHS by Labour

The "dignity and safety" of patients at Wales' largest hospital, The University Hospital of Wales (UHW) in Cardiff, was compromised on a daily basis, according to a Health Inspectorate Wales report. 

Commenting on the news, Welsh Conservative Shadow Health Minister, Russell George MS said: 

“This alarming report describes a dire situation in Wales’ largest hospital. Sadly, this is not a special case or one off. The issues highlighted in this report are indicative of the widespread, gross mismanagement of the Welsh NHS, by Labour. 

“The Welsh NHS has been perpetually mismanaged and under-resourced by successive Labour Governments in Cardiff Bay. Labour in Wales are in fact the only Government in the UK to have cut funding for the NHS. 

“Urgent action is required from the Labour Government to address these distressing inadequacies as it is clear that patient safety is being put at risk.” 

  • People were seen sitting on bins and on the floor of the emergency and assessment units at Cardiff's University Hospital of Wales (UHW).
  • Staff morale was found to be at an "all-time low", the report said. 
  • Hospital staff had raised concerns about the equipment available to them, including not having the correct facilities to treat burned children correctly.
