Two more Princess of Wales Hospital nurses on neglect charges

Two nurses arrested as part of an investigation into allegations of wilful neglect at the Princess of Wales Hospital in Bridgend have been charged.

South Wales Police said the two, who were arrested last month, will appear in court later this month.

One has been charged with three counts of wilful neglect, and the other with four counts.

The allegations involve the falsification of entries in patients' notes.

Three other nurses from the Bridgend hospital have previously been charged as part of the same investigation.

Police said the new charges relate to three patients, all of whom are among those already subject to previous charges in the inquiry.

Abertawe Bro Morgannwg University Health Board has suspended 15 nurses as part of the inquiry - all but one of them from the Princess of Wales hospital.
