Protestors rally over health changes

Campaigners say they are expecting hundreds of people to turn out to protest against possible changes to services at the Princess of Wales Hospital in Bridgend.

A consultation is currently underway over a reorganisation of health services across south Wales. The protest group 'Save Our Services' say they that they are concerned about the potential changes including a proposal to downgrade the full Accident & Emergency Unit and the Special Care Baby Unit.

Health service bosses say that the changes are essential to ensure that hospital care meets UK-wide professional standards and to deal with issues such as a shortage of doctors and increasing demand.
