Royal Glamorgan hospital could lose specialist services

The Royal Glamorgan hospital in Llantrisant could stop treating the most serious accident and emergency cases as part of a major NHS shake-up in south Wales.

Health officials say the "best fit" is to locate specialist services in Cardiff, Swansea, Merthyr, Bridgend and in a new hospital near Cwmbran.

They say services are currently being run on a "knife edge" and warn they are close to collapse

But a consultation will include options involving the Royal Glamorgan.

NHS leaders believe services are currently spread too thinly.
