The publication of the South Wales Programme - detailing proposed reorganisation of health services across South Wales - has been postponed.
The South Wales Programme board – the chairs and chief executives of each of the organisations – has been working continuously to develop and agree a set of recommendations to take to special board meetings.
Those meetings were scheduled to take place tomorrow (December 12) but it is with regret that these have been postponed because a small but important number of details need further work by members of the programme board before it is able to make its final recommendations.
– Dr Andrew Goodall, Chief Executive, Aneurin Bevan Health Board & Paul Hollard, South Wales Programme
These outstanding details relate to the arrangements needed to manage these fragile services during the time between the decision being made and implementation of the new service models. The programme board is also giving further consideration to the long-term strategy, which has evolved from the consultation feedback, about the future pattern of hospital services across South Wales
The programme board is due to meet to continue its discussions on December 17 and we anticipate the special health board and Welsh Ambulance Services NHS Trust meetings will be rescheduled for early in the New Year.

The birthrate may have dropped off in Wales but the complexity of care that midwives are required to deliver in caring for the increase in older mothers has placed extra pressures on midwives.
In terms of employing and retaining midwives, Wales is currently ahead of England but we must make sure that we don't become complacent.
We're happy with midwifery training levels in Wales. Figures show steady increase, ensuring that midwives moving towards retirement are replaced long before they leave the profession with newly-qualified midwives, who have had time to develop and hone their skills"
The Welsh Government have responded to a joint review into the access of mental health services by Health Inspectorate Wales and the Wales Audit Office, which says children and young people continue to be put at risk.
A spokesperson for the Welsh Government said: “Since March 2013, the Health Minister Mark Drakeford has chaired quarterly meetings with the Vice-Chairs of NHS organisations, to discuss mental health services. The next meeting will take place early in the New Year.
“Today’s report will be the first item on the agenda in order to accelerate progress for children and young people.”
Many children and young people in Wales who are accessing mental health services are still being put at risk, despite action taken to address safety issues.
That's according to a joint review by the Wales Audit Office and Healthcare Inspectorate Wales.
– Darren Millar AM, Chair of the Public Accounts Committee
Despite the action taken by NHS Wales to address the safety issues highlighted in 2009, it is clear from today's follow-up report that children and young people accessing mental health services in Wales are still being put at risk. This is completely unacceptable.
Many young people are still admitted inappropriately to adult mental health wards or are placed long distances away from their families and friends, due to a lack of capacity in the two specialist inpatient units in Wales.
Children and young people accessing mental health services in Wales continue to be put at risk, according to a joint review by Health Inspectorate Wales and the Wales Audit Office.
The review focuses on action taken by the Welsh Government and health boards in response to safety concerns identified in a report in 2009.
Whilst the review acknowledges some improvements, it says risks identified in the 2009 report still remain.
It says some children and young people are still being inappropriately admitted to adult mental health wards, health professionals are failing to share information, and unsafe discharge practices persist.
The report makes a number of recommendations for the Welsh Government.
– Huw Vaughan Thomas, Auditor General for Wales
Despite the steps taken to address the safety concerns raised in the 2009 report, children and young people continue to be put at risk. The Welsh Government therefore needs to take a stronger grip to ensure that health boards are designing and delivering services which protect children and young people and minimise the risks to them.
More than two hundred pupils and almost a hundred staff will be offered screening for tuberculosis (TB) today at Ysgol y Strade school in Llanelli, as a precaution.
It follows screening last month which revealed positive test results in three pupils and a member of staff.
Experts say the risk of spreading the infection is low, and there is believed to be no ongoing risk within the school.
Sion Lingard, Chair of the Incident Control Team said:
"We are emphasising to pupils, parents and staff that it is rare for TB to be transmitted within a school environment.
"Further screening is being carried out due to the very small risk that others may have picked up the infection within the school. All those who are likely to have had some form of contact with the infectious staff member will be screened."
A new report published today by the Royal College of Midwives (RCM) said the number of babies born in Wales fell last year.
However, the number of women over 40 becoming mothers in Wales rose by 64%, which they say could lead to more complex births.
