Welsh NHS £2.1m redundancy bill for up to 25 people criticised

Nearly half of the money spent making NHS staff redundant in Wales over the past three years was paid out by one north Wales health board, new figures show.

Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board, which has been the focus of several highly critical reports over the past year, spent almost £1m between 2010 and 2013, making six people redundant.

The Freedom of Information request by the Welsh Conservatives also showed £1.3m was paid by three other health boards.

Campaigners fighting cuts to NHS services in north Wales have criticised the payments.
