Hywel Dda Health Board: Plan to shut community hospitals
Hywel Dda Health Board has announced its plans to reorganise the NHS service it provides in mid and west Wales.
The board provides a variety of health services for almost 400,000 people.
The proposals include closing three community hospitals and replacing the accident-and-emergency department at Llanelli's Prince Philip Hospital, with a nurse-led facility.
The health board says it will invest £40m in six local community centres, which will provide additional medical services.
