'Take politics out of NHS Wales future' say physicians

Senior doctors have urged politicians to address NHS challenges and low morale and give clinicians the power to make radical changes.

The Royal College of Physicians (RCP) says more Welsh medical students need to be trained to fill gaps.

It wants Wales to "lead the way" in public health such as taxes on sugary drinks, with obesity a "huge problem".

Political parties have been urged to take on board an RCP action plan ahead of the 2016 Welsh assembly elections.

Dr Alan Rees, RCP vice president for Wales told BBC Wales health correspondent Owain Clarke what he wanted to see.
