NHS board names 'hard' for junior doctors in recruitment

Changing the names of some of Wales' health boards might help solve a shortage of junior doctors.

That is the view of the man in charge of training, with 400 places unfilled.

Prof Derek Gallen believes a perception of Wales is a problem, with junior doctors knowing Cardiff but not sure where Hywel Dda or Betsi Cadwaladr is.

He told BBC Wales health correspondent Owain Clarke that changing names might be worth trying.
