Wrexham GP Dr Peter Saul on NHS problems and staff morale

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."

Wrexham GP Dr Peter Saul said the health service faced problems of recruitment, "dramatically" increasing waiting lists and queues outside hospital accident and emergency.

He also told BBC Radio Wales' Oliver Hides there may have to be unpopular decisions to make the NHS work better.
