Betsi Cadwaladr maternity care: Recruitment secures U-turn

More doctors and midwives means the health board for north Wales can scrap plans to change maternity services, its interim chief says.

The Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board has backed a report asking it to ditch proposals that would see consultant-led care suspended at Glan Clwyd Hospital in Denbighshire.

It follows a six-week consultation on the plans, which were drawn up amid concerns over staffing levels.

But interim chief executive Simon Dean said that position had changed during the consultation process.
