Betsi Cadwaladr Health Board: NHS debt fear despite cash injection
Wales' health boards are struggling to balance their books as the financial year comes to a close.
The health board covering the largest area, Betsi Cadwaladr, says it could be almost £4m in the red, despite getting extra funding from the Welsh government in December.
A Welsh government spokesperson has said the health boards have a fixed budget to work within and they have a statutory duty to deliver services within it.
Prof Ceri Phillips, a health economist at Swansea University, told Peter Johnson on BBC Radio Wales that there had been unprecedented demand on health services lately.
