Apology for 14-hour wait1st March 2012
Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board has apologised after accident and emergency department patients were kept waiting up to 14 hours for a bed at a hospital at Ysbyty Gwynedd, Bangor.
It blamed a lack of beds for leaving nine patients waiting on trolleys for eight hours, while some waited a further six hours to be seen. Conservative assembly health spokesperson Darren Millar said the situation was an “unacceptable blunder” but said the apology was welcome but of little comfort to those kept waiting.
