Hafal Chair Elin Jones spoke on Radio Cymru’s “Post Prynhawn” last night about the possible bed closures at Ysbyty Gwynedd’s Hergest Unit.
Responding to Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board’s announcement that some beds at the Hergest Unit at Ysbyty Gwynedd could temporarily close to try and deal with concerns over the way patients are treated, Carina Edwards, Hafal’s North Wales Regional Manager, said:
Hafal recently submitted information about some of the work they do in Wales to promote empowerment and good practice to the World Health Organisation Collaborating Centre for research and training in mental health (WWO-CC).
Commenting on Mr Clegg’s statements, Junaid Iqbal of mental health charity Hafal, said: “Hafal’s Members are very interested in the Action Plan and the priority that the UK Government is giving to mental health. The announcements only cover England as health is devolved to the Assembly, but we are very interested to see whether words are turned into actions across the border.
