A final decision on controversial changes to health services in mid and west Wales will be made at a meeting of Hywel Dda Health Board this morning.
The proposals include:
- closing Mynydd Mawr Community Hospital in Llanelli
- downgrading Llanelli's Prince Phillip Hospital's A&E to an 'urgent care centre'
- centralising maternity care and developing specialist paediatric services, including a Complex Obstetric Unit at Glangwili Hospital in Carmarthen
Hywel Dda health chiefs agree a plan to cut services in some smaller hospitals and re-invest millions of pounds in new community facilities.
