Mark Drakeford: Compassionate care 'real story of NHS'

The real story of the Welsh NHS is of "careful, compassionate care" says the health minister in the wake of renewed calls for a public inquiry into the NHS Wales.

Mark Drakeford said it was inevitable there would be isolated examples where things could be done better.

It follows checks at 20 hospitals in Wales after criticism of the care of elderly patients.
