    Nurses in Wales are constantly telling me that they're under pressure. They're firefighting at the frontline with increasing workloads and frustrated at being unable to provide the quality of care that they are trained to, and want to, deliver. 

    Whenever I'm talking to people up and down Wales, they're shocked when I tell them that there is currently no legal duty to provide safe nurse staffing levels in Welsh hospitals. That's why I'm pleased to be launching my draft Safe Nurse Staffing Levels (Wales) Bill today for consultation.
