BMA in Wales says NHS culture change needed

The British Medical Association has called for a full-scale independent investigation into all services in the NHS in Wales.

Chairman Dr Phil Banfield said the NHS in Wales was facing "imminent meltdown" unless action was taken swiftly.

BMA Wales wants Healthcare Inspectorate Wales to become independent of the NHS and the Welsh government.

A Welsh government spokesperson said: "We have received a copy of the BMA's report and look forward to reading it."

Dr Banfield said he believed the next two years are crucial.
