Health Minister discussing care for newborn babies

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.
