NDM7058 Darren Millar (Clwyd West)

To propose that the National Assembly for Wales:

1. Notes that 8 June 2019 marks four years since the Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board was placed into special measures.

2. Further notes that ministerial oversight of special measures arrangements at the Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board has consistently been with the current health Minister.

3. Regrets that the Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board still has significant improvements to make in its mental health services and its governance, leadership and oversight, in spite of spending longer in special measures for these matters than any organisation in the history of the National Health Service.

4. Calls upon the health Minister to accept his responsibility for failing to deliver the required improvement at the Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board over the past four years and resign.

The following amendment has been tabled:

Amendment 1 - Rebecca Evans (Gower)

Delete points 2, 3, and 4 and replace with:

Recognises the progress made in the initial areas identified as concerns in 2015 and the continued focus and improvement required for de-escalation.
