Betsi Cadwaladr health watchdog opposes hospital shake-up

The patient watchdog for the NHS in north Wales says it cannot approve plans to overhaul hospital services.

The Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board (BCUHB) proposals would see two community hospitals and some units elsewhere close.

But the Betsi Cadwaladr Community Health Council (CHC) said it did not think at the moment that the proposals were in the interest of patients.

CHC chair Dr Christine Evans tells Oliver Hides on BBC Radio Wales why the patient watchdog is opposing hospital shake-up plans.
