MP Ann Clwyd to continue calls for Welsh NHS changes

Labour MP Ann Clwyd said her criticism of the Welsh NHS is not personal and she will continue to call for changes.

The Cynon Valley MP claimed her husband spent 27 hours on a trolley before dying in 2012.

She has since led a UK government-commissioned inquiry on how NHS hospitals in England handle complaints.

But she said she has also received hundreds of letters from patients expressing concern over experiences in Welsh hospitals.

However, she told Mai Davies on BBC Radio Wales' Good Morning Wales programme that she had endeavoured to keep her personal concerns and her NHS investigations apart.
