To propose that the National Assembly for Wales:
1. Welcomes the crucial role Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board frontline staff play in delivering services and supporting patients across north Wales.
2. Notes the Welsh Government’s decision to place Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board in special measures in June 2015.
3. Believes that the Welsh Government has failed to address increasing waiting times in north Wales and the health board’s deteriorating financial position.
4. Calls on the Welsh Government to:
a) clarify what steps it is taking to ensure that the financial uncertainty at Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board does not undermine the delivery of services;
b) publish a clear action plan for returning the health board to its normal status; and
c) explain the measures the health board will undertake to improve patient outcomes.
