a) Write to Mrs X to provide an explanation and apology that her concerns were not addressed in accordance with the agreed procedure

b) Provide Mrs X with an undertaking to update details of contact arrangements currently in place

c) Confirm the timescale in which Mrs X can expect to be invited to relevant meetings and when updates will be issued following such meetings

d) Write to Mrs X with the Health Board’s findings in relation to her concerns.
