Hospital care standards review urged by Royal College of Surgeons

A review of all Welsh hospitals to address "public anxiety" about standards of NHS care has been urged by the Royal College of Surgeons (RCS).

The respected professional body said it was worried about poor performance and called for "urgent assurance" on safety.

It said the hospital inspection system should be beefed up with more input from professional medical bodies.

But the Welsh government said a review was not needed.

BBC Wales health correspondent Owain Clarke reports.
