MONMOUTH Assembly Member Nick Ramsay has backed calls for a Keogh–style public inquiry into the NHS in Wales.
Mr Ramsay has been contacted by a number of constituents concerned about waiting times for operations in Wales and also problems of accessing cross-border care.
Speaking today Nick said:
“The NHS in Wales is clearly experiencing major problems of capacity and funding at the current time, with waiting times for certain operations far exceeding those across the border. This is in spite of the hard work of many committed hospital staff. The current bureaucratic structure is not working.
“We need a full inquiry into the NHS and need to consider all options for rescuing the service from its current predicaments.”
