Health board name baffles people in north Wales

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 left unfilled.

Prof Derek Gallen believes a perception of Wales is a problem, with junior doctors knowing Cardiff but not sure what areas the Hywel Dda or Betsi Cadwaladr health boards cover.

But Deputy Health Minister Vaughan Gething disagreed, saying changing health boards' names was not the solution to attracting junior medics.

Roger Pinney asked people in north Wales if they knew which health board area they live in.
