NHS neglect: Calls for inquiry after woman's death

Calls are being made for an inquiry into Welsh NHS care standards and death rates.

It follows allegations that an elderly patient suffered serious neglect at two Abertawe Bro Morgannwg University Health Board hospitals.

Welsh Conservative leader, Andrew RT Davies, wants an inquiry like the Keogh review which has put 11 English NHS trusts into special measures.

The health board apologised. The Welsh government said no inquiry is needed.

India Pollock reports.
