Calls for Welsh NHS to provide SDR cerebral palsy operation

A seven year old girl from Monmouth is learning to walk again after having an operation to relieve the symptoms of cerebral palsy.

Chase Vaughan underwent the procedure known as SDR at Frenchay Hospital in Bristol.

Her family had to raise £40,000 to pay for it, as it's not available on the NHS in Wales.

Richard Morgan reports.

On Monday, we'll be looking at why the SDR treatment isn't available in Wales.

You see more on Chase's story on Wales This Week tomorrow night at 8pm on ITV.
