Damning report on Ysbyty Glan Clwyd

STAFF shortages, unsuitable facilities and a failure to rapidly discharge patients is creating a log-jam at North Wales’ busiest hospital.

The best efforts of “committed” A&E staff at Ysbyty Glan Clwyd in Bodelwyddan are being undermined by inadequate premises, poor communication and a lack of clinical leadership, a watchdog says.

This was leading to “unacceptable” delays in the emergency department that has left ambulances queuing five deep outside the hospital, the Health Inspectorate of Wales (HIW) revealed.

And while staff worked diligently within the hospital, they admitted they were not always able to provide a high standard of care because of a lack of staffing due to recruitment delays.

Thanks to the Daily Post for this.
