'Special measures' health board plans

Welsh ministers could put health boards in special measures, under new plans to tackle any serious NHS failings.

In "exceptional circumstances" they could involve suspending the organisation's board or asking another body to run the service.

Less drastic options, in place from next month, are "enhanced monitoring" and "targeted intervention".

Ministers said they were "clear" arrangements "for all to understand" how such matters would be dealt with.

BBC Wales' James Williams outlined the plans to Kate Morgan.
