A debate will be held in the Senedd later on how to prepare the Welsh Health Service for another busy winter.

Last week David Sissling, the Chief Executive, revealed to the Public Accounts Committee that the service was only just catching up with the backlog of cancelled operations caused by last winter's surge in demand.

In October, Hywel Dda Health Board outlined plans to stop some non-urgent operations over winter months.
