Case Against

Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board



Case Reference Number



Upheld in whole or in part

Mr A complained that he was not provided with appropriate pain medication for his long-term arm injury while in prison (where medical treatment is provided by the Health Board). The investigation found that the Prison GP’s rationale for not providing the same medication that Mr A had been prescribed whilst in the community, both in relation to the dangers to Mr A himself, and in the wider context of the prison population, was appropriate and the complaint was therefore not upheld.
