Action at Glan Clwyd hospital as C difficile infections rise

Wales' largest health board has been criticised for the way it handled an outbreak of the hospital infection C difficile which contributed to the deaths of at least seven people this year.

New cases at Glan Clwyd hospital, Bodelwyddan, Denbighshire, went up from three a week last year to eight a week in March and April.

An expert is being brought in by the Betsi Cadwaladr Health Board to review its procedures in hospitals in north Wales.

Roger Pinney reports.
