Welsh Liberal Democrats have criticised the Health Minister's announcement of a comprehensive review of the Welsh Ambulance Service. Lib Dem leader Kirsty Williams said:
Following the decision of the Assembly's health committee to question Lesley Griffiths next week, sources close to the minister are determined to head off any opposition claims that she's being 'dragged' before the committee.
The sources insist that 'it was her offer, she volunteered to appear before them, she's on the front foot on this.'
The new Butetown Health Centre has been officially opened in Cardiff. Health Minister Lesley Griffiths AM was there at the unveiling of the multi-million pound development.
Welsh Conservatives have dismissed the Health Minister's attack on their claims about the lack of availability of 24 cancer drugs. You can read what she said here. Now Shadow Health Minister Darren Millar has issued this statement.
The Welsh Conservatives believe their campaign matches concerns of voters. They're not going to give up on this line of attack, in fact expect to see it stepped up and intensified over the coming months.
More babies needing special care in Wales may have to be treated in England if proposals to improve neonatal care go ahead. Health Minister Lesley Griffiths says there are currently too many small units in Wales that don't have the proper services.
Answering a question from Jocelyn Davies AM before the Children and Young People Committee, Health Minister Lesley Griffiths AM says gradual improvements are being made to neonatal services in Wales.
The Health Minister Lesley Griffiths is appearing before the National Assembly's Children and Young People Committee this morning to discuss plans for neonatal care in Wales. There have been fears about the future of services for newborn babies with the planned reorganisation of the health service.
At an evidence session earlier in the year consultant neonatologists described how they were constantly 'skating close to the wire' with 100% occupancy of special care incubators and instances of mothers and babies being transferred to England as there were no facilities for them in Wales.
