David Joseph family: Diabetic care action a 'let-down'

The care of diabetic patients in Welsh hospitals must be improved urgently according to the family of a man who died as a result of failures in 2008.

The family of David Joseph, 80, said pledges made by health care inspectors in the wake of their father's death had not been kept.

Monitoring failures contributed to his hypoglycaemic attack and he later suffered a heart attack.

Heath Inspectorate Wales admitted progress on improvements was slow.
