A VOTE of no confidence is set to be tabled at the Health Minister in the Senedd tomorrow. 

The Welsh Conservatives have tabled the motion directed at Eluned Morgan, the Welsh Government's Minister for Health and Social Services.

The conservatives say the decision comes following the 'disgraceful' handing of Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board, which has been placed back into special measures.

The Health Board was in special measures for nearly six years before being taken out in 2021.

Last month, BCUHB was put back into special measures, due to "serious concerns about performance, leadership and culture".

A large number of Betsi board members stepped down following the decision, now the Conservatives are calling for the Health Minister to go as well. 


Shadow Minister for North Wales, Darren Millar MS, said: “The failure to get to grips with the issues at the Betsi Cadwaladr Heath Board has been scandalous, yet those responsible are still at the helm. 

“Patients and frontline staff in North Wales have been let down by Labour for far too long.

"Patients have died and come to harm, staff have been bullied and are burnt out, yet those responsible are still in post. 

"We need a health service in Wales where people are held to account where things go wrong and that starts with the Health Minister.

"The Minister refused to intervene when called upon to do so last year and services have deteriorated further as a result. She is now trying to dodge responsibility for what has happened on her watch. 

"Enough is enough; the Health Minister must go."

A Welsh Government spokesperson said: “We will respond to the debate tomorrow.”
