Withybush hospital could end some maternity care

Staff at Withybush Hospital in Pembrokeshire have been told that consultant and doctor-led care at the maternity unit will end next March.

It is also believed that all acute paediatric cases could be transferred from Haverfordwest to Carmarthen.

Nurses and doctors were told of the plan last week, BBC Wales has learned.

Hywel Dda Health Board said the transfer of services was an option but no decision had been made, and talks were taking place with staff.
