Completed petition BCUHB has failed the people of North Wales and should be disbanded into smaller units.

Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board (BCUHB) (Bwrdd Iechyd Prifysgol Betsi Cadwaladr) is the LHB of NHS Wales for the north of Wales. It is the largest health organisation in Wales, providing primary, community, mental health, and acute hospital services for a population of around 694,000 people across the six principal areas of north Wales (Anglesey, Conwy, Denbighshire, Flintshire, Gwynedd and Wrexham) as well as parts of Mid Wales. It has been in and out of special measures since 2015.

More details

BCUHB has had a series of chief executives and executives who have without exception failed to grapple the huge organisational disaster that is Betsi care. Vascular services, stroke services, disastrous Accident and Emergency waits, Mental Health and crippling waiting times for planned surgery are not being dealt with with sufficient urgency. The people of North Wales have been let down.The scrutiny of board decisions go unchallenged and patients are suffering unnecessarily.
It's time to admit that the organisation is far too big and unwieldy to respond to the challenges it faces and break it up into smaller geographical units that respond to the needs of their local populations.
