Glan Clwyd Hospital: Right to apologise, says Vaughan Gething

The deputy health minister has warned opponents not to treat a damning report into a Denbighshire mental health ward as a "party political triumph".

Vaughan Gething said "institutional abuse" found at Glan Clwyd Hospital's Tawel Fan unit was not typical of the NHS care received by patients.

Families said patients at Tawel Fan were treated like animals in a zoo.

Mr Gething said Betsi Cadwaladr Health Board was being brought to account and they were right to apologise to the families..
