She said it was "disgraceful" that councils had lost almost £200m with "little notice" to "bail out health boards" in the Welsh government budget.
Ministers denied the NHS had gained funding at the expense of councils.

Ms ap Gwynn urged the assembly's Finance Committee to send "a clear message" to the Wales Audit Office (WAO) about the need for an investigation into how boards manage their finances.This week, Auditor General Huw Vaughan Thomas called for an urgent and far-reaching debate on how much the Welsh government could afford to spend on the NHS.Last month, the Welsh government's draft budget for 2015-16 allocated an extra £425m to the health service over the next two years.But £192m was cut from Welsh ministers' total local government budget for 2015-16, and they announced last week that the money directly paid to the 22 local authorities in their block grants would fall by £146m.
Ms ap Gwynn hopefully wil not be dismissed outright .
This may sound odd coming from a Blog claiming to be on the Progressive Left especially one who this Year had a serious Operation followed by another say in hospital and who has had numerous visits to clinics and faces many more.
But so long as Health boards feel that they can rely on Politicians to increase spending fearing Political suicide if they don't. There will be no incentive to see our they can be more effective.and save money whilst maintaining or even improving services.
The Welsh Government and all the other Parties have to look hard this.
As long as we are in a robbing Peter to pay Paul where Peter is always the NHS it will not consider reform.
This week Labour, Conservatives, Plaid Cymru and Liberal Democrats in the Assembly. with Proposals for further devolution to Wales.
Maybe they should also agree on the current system of all calling for money to be spent on the NHS and find a way to seekingh how it can become better
But there seems to be little chance of this happening
Ellen ap Gwynn will probably be a loan voice but the least we can do is listen to what she says.
