The £6.8million Welsh Government funding will be used to strengthen the Health Board’s delivery of planned and unscheduled care across all three hospitals, and drive further improvements to mental health and learning disability services.

Vaughan Gething said:

“In May I set out my expectations for the Health Board over the next 18 months, and made a commitment to provide more intensive support, including additional resources to quickly and efficiently deliver the improvements needed to the Health Board.

This funding forms part of that support. It will be used to set up stronger operational governance and accountability at the Health Board and to push forward financial improvements. I expect to see significant improvements for patients as a result, especially in planned and unscheduled care across North Wales.”
