    Just when you thought they couldn’t get anymore incompetent we learn almost 1,700 mental health patients who still needed support were released early because of someone misinterpreting guidelines.

    Health board apologises after almost 1,700 mental health patients in North Wales get wrongly discharged

    What kind of absolute f*cking idiots have we got running the health board in North Wales?

    What process is there for a root and branch change to the Management of the BCHB ? The staff work tirelessly to give the public good treatment but they are up against budget debts, vacancies unfilled for years, referrals to out of area hospitals refused because of unpaid bills and the list goes on. BCHB have been in special measure for years with what effect ?

    Lets make this thread clear that there is no criticism to front line staff who do a fantastic job-
    Welsh Government when they put the Board into Special Measures was supposed to have an independent oversight – if that is happening and these failings still exist then the operational management failings fall directly at the Minister Vaughan Gethin door.

    They have had changes of Chief Exec, Changes if Board chair, new Directors, masses of ‘specialist consultants’ and it is still worse than ever.

    Staff are being gagged and not permitted to speak out at failings they see around them on a daily basis.

    The scale of the organisation makes it virtually impossible to turn it around- they probably have one last attempt and that is to bring in non medical senior managers who have the experience of turning businesses around- the skill requirements are high calibre Private Sector managers who have skills to make things efficient and improve services.

    In England Nick Hancock wrote off the debts of All health boards in one stroke. What effect would the same process have on BCHB? Mark Drakeford said it was merely an accounting exercise in England and wasn’t possible in Wales. Another reason why we should return to a real National Health Service.

    More proof that the BCHB are not fit for purpose.

    North Wales health board rapped by auditors for £60m Ysbyty Glan Clwyd revamp overspend

    This report goes back to 2014, was this irresponsible , recklessness , stupidity or a deliberate act by someone? Whatever the real cause the
    Public are still being affected and there is little hope that the debt of the Health Board will be written off because of the “strings “ Vaughan Gethin have attached to his offer. The Welsh Assembly are not blameless in this episode so maybe they should do the right thing and remove the “strings “ and wipe out the debt.

    Matt I was worried by the title of this and the “Year Zero” (PP) overtones. But its ok so carry on.

    A hero is someone who understands the responsibility that comes with his freedom.
