It says Cardiff and Vale University Health Board has given assurances that its staffing plans will not risk levels of care, and that no decisions have been made yet.
– Welsh Government spokesperson
We are disappointed that the BMA have taken this step as we feel it is important that they take the opportunity to be part of the discussions on workforce and employment issues in Wales.
Staffing levels are a matter for LHBs but they have to be consistent with levels of safe care and we have received assurances on this from Cardiff and Vale University Health Board.
It is important to remember this is part of Cardiff and Vale UHB's consultation on reconfiguration plans and final decisions have not been taken.
