South Wales NHS: Discussions over shake-up recommendation
13 February 2014 Last updated at 15:34 GMT
A recommendation has been made for key services in south Wales to be centralised at five hospitals.
They will be Cardiff's University Hospital of Wales, Morriston Hospital in Swansea, a new hospital near Cwmbran, Prince Charles Hospital in Merthyr and the Princess of Wales Hospital in Bridgend.
Services include A&E, specialist care for mothers, babies and children.
But the Royal Glamorgan in Llantrisant would see some services downgraded.
The five health boards involved have been considering their response.
