Labour MP Ann Clwyd has welcomed her appointment by Prime Minister David Cameron as an adviser on how NHS hospitals handle complaints.

Ms Clwyd had protested about the care her late husband received while he was in hospital last year.

She will advise Mr Cameron after the findings of an inquiry into failings at Stafford Hospital in Staffordshire.

The Cynon Valley MP was appointed alongside South Tees Hospitals NHS Trust chief executive Tricia Hart.

Ms Clwyd spoke to BBC Wales Today's Lucy Owen about her new role.
