NHS chief David Sissling answers questions from finance committee

The chief executive of the NHS in Wales will appear before a committee of AMs to answer questions over the service's finances.

David Sissling will face the Public Accounts Committee a week after a Wales Audit Office report said the NHS could be £70m in the red by March 2013.

He previously told BBC he is "increasingly confident" that Wales' health boards will balance their books.

Mr Sissling said a detailed plan was in place to help them to break even.

BBC Wales health correspondent Owain Clarke told Bethan Rhys Roberts about the background to the hearing.
