Hospital to close
Campaigners trying to save Prestatyn community hospital say they're angry after members of Denbighshire Local Health Board voted today to go ahead with its closure.
At a meeting in Rhyl this morning, board members decided that the 12 bed unit should be shut down in about a year's time and replaced with alternative care including specialised housing units and more community nursing. But no details of the alternative care were revealed.
Veronica Wells, from the Save Chatsworth House action group, said: "It was a foregone conclusion. These people were never going to listen to the people of Prestatyn."
