Plaid Cymru has criticised the First Minister's announcement on plans for treating babies born in North Wales who need extra care. Carwyn Jones said he'd listened to advice and would develop a centre in the region. But the most serious cases would still be treated on the Wirral.
Plaid's Llyr Gruffydd says that means relying on the English health service the First Minister has criticised:
The Labour government’s plans mean that our most vulnerable babies will be sent to the NHS in England that the First Minister has been so critical of. Plaid Cymru has always made the case for the retention of these life-saving services in North Wales, and for north Wales to maintain this level of expertise.
Unfortunately the Welsh Government has dragged its feet and failed to act on the warnings that the service has become unsustainable, and as a result the people of north Wales have lost this important service. It’s now becoming clear that the defining characteristic of the First Minister’s leadership is that he doesn’t want any responsibility.
