Dear Mr Millar


At a meeting of the Consultants based at Ysbyty Gwynedd on the 5th July 2013.  The following points were agreed:


  1. The Consultant body had lack of confidence in the current Board and Executive to manage with appropriate speed, the changes necessary to sustain good health care in north Wales
  2. The Consultant body didn’t believe the current internal structures of the Health Board (the Clinical Programme Groups) were fit for purpose.
  3. There needs to be a fundamental shift of emphasis to locality based management with locality based clinical input.


Yours sincerely 





Dr Tony Roberts

Chair, Gwynedd Consultants and Specialists Committee
