Former Betsi Cadwaladr Chairman’s statement piles pressure on Labour Health Minister to go
Commenting on the Daily Post story wherein Mark Polin, former Chair of Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board speaks for the first time ahead of a Welsh Conservative debate forcing a no confidence vote in the Labour Health Minister, Welsh Conservative Shadow Minister for North Wales, Darren Millar MS said:
“The former Chair of Betsi Cadwaladr tells it like it is in today’s Daily Post.
“The people of North Wales and hardworking frontline NHS staff have been let down for far too long.
“Enough is enough. The Labour Government in Cardiff Bay must accept responsibility for the NHS in North Wales and be held to account for its failings.
“The buck stops with the Health Minister. It’s time for her to go.”
North Wales left behind
Commenting on his exchange with the Labour Minister with responsibility for North Wales in the Welsh Parliament today, Welsh Conservative Shadow Minister for North Wales, Darren Millar MS said:
“With 15 of the 16 lined up road projects scrapped, Betsi Cadwaladr in and out of special measures and a tourism tax on the horizon, North Wales is being perpetually let down and left behind by the Labour establishment in Cardiff Bay.
“I challenged the Labour Minister to reveal her shopping list for North Wales, to explain where she would invest North Wales’ share of the £780 million in consequential funds from the UK Conservative Government. She flatly refused to do so – no answer, no plan.
“The Welsh Conservatives have a plan for North Wales, it involves upgrading our dilapidated transport infrastructure, improving educational outcomes, managing our NHS properly and bridging the North-South divide.”
