Hywel Dda NHS plans passed to health minister

Controversial plans for big changes to the NHS in mid and west Wales have been referred to the Welsh government, BBC Wales understands.

Hywel Dda Health Board wants to change accident and emergency care at Prince Philip Hospital in Llanelli.

The Special Care Baby Unit at Withybush Hospital in Haverfordwest would also close under some of its plans.

But watchdog Hywel Dda Community Health Council is set to publicly reveal its decision to refer the plans later.

BBC Wales health correspondent Owain Clarke reports.
