Betsi Cadwaladr Health Board has amended controversial plans to reorganise NHS services in North Wales.

A 'hub' hospital will now be sited in Mold, instead of Deeside as proposed. Xray services will be reduced but retained at Caernarfon and Pwllheli, another change from the initial proposal.

However, the board's report recommends pressing ahead with plans to move neonatal intensive care to Arrowe Park Hospital on the Wirral.
