Short debate: Neonatal care


Conservative AM Antoinette Sandbach said Betsi Cadwaladr's proposed changes to neonatal care are "unthinkable".

The North Wales AM led a short debate on neonatal care on 16 January 2013.

She highlighted the situation for neonatal care in north Wales and the possible effect of proposed changes to families and children in the region.

"Having a newborn in intensive care is bad enough, driving hundreds of miles to get them there is unthinkable," she said.

Health Minister Lesley Griffiths said that the "health and wellbeing of sick and premature babies are a priority for this government."

She would not be drawn to comment any further on the situation in north Wales as Betsi Cadwaladr could refer their plans to the government for a final decision on changes.
