Ombudsman to watch Betsi health board after more failings

A troubled health board has been told to improve its patient record keeping and hospital discharges by a watchdog.

Betsi Cadwaladr is to be reported to NHS inspectors after the Public Services Ombudsman again found failings in patient care.

Two hospitals failed in the care of a patient with Parkinson's Disease.

The board has admitted below standard care but ombudsman Peter Tyndall said the board's 'sheer sequence of similar failings" was a major concern.

He spoke to Bethan Rhys Roberts on BBC Radio Wales.
