Welsh hospital bed numbers falling
The number of hospital beds in Wales has fallen by more than 1,000 in the last three years, BBC Wales has learned.
Statistics from Welsh health boards after Freedom of Information requests also reveal that many hospitals are routinely overcrowded.
The Welsh government says the quality of NHS care should be judged on a wider range of factors than just bed numbers.
However, as Abigail Neal reports, nursing leaders say it shows the "immense pressure" being placed on NHS staff.
