Welsh hospitals: No easy answer to health pressures

Hospitals across Wales say they are experiencing "unprecedented" levels of admissions.

Hywel Dda Health Board said some operations had been postponed as a result, but it had increased bed numbers to cope with the influx.

Aneurin Bevan, Betsi Cadwaladr, Cardiff and Vale and Abertawe Bro Morgannwg have also seen admissions rise.

The Welsh Ambulance Service said it was concerned about the handover delays at hospitals.

Roy Norris, a former chair of the Welsh Ambulance Trust who currently sits on the Montgomery Community Health Council, told Bethan Rhys Roberts there is no easy answer to the problems.
