Welsh Health Minister failed to meet with Public Health Wales following coronavirus data breach

Commenting on the admission from Public Health Wales that it had not met with the Health Minister following a significant data breach involving over 18,000 coronavirus patients, Welsh Conservative health spokesperson, Andrew RT Davies MS, said: 

This was a remarkable admission from Public Health Wales.

I find it astonishing that between the time of this data breach and the news going public, Labour's health minister did not instigate a meeting with key figures at Public Health Wales to get to the bottom of what went so spectacularly wrong.

The effectiveness of track and trace is dependent on people having trust in the system and the protection of their data, but the poor handling of this incident by Labour ministers in Cardiff Bay will only to serve to undermine public confidence.”
