Legal challenge plan over Betsi Cadwaladr health changes

Opponents of plans for major changes to the health service in north Wales are considering a legal challenge.

A group fighting the proposals was formed at a meeting in St Asaph, Denbighshire, on Monday night.

It follows Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board's decision to shut four community hospitals and transfer care for seriously ill babies to England.

The board says changes are needed to meet cost cutting targets and provide effective health care in the future.

Oliver Hides of BBC Radio Wales spoke to Dr Christine Evans, chair of the region's Community Health Council - the official watchdog - which holds its own meeting on Wednesday.
