Betsi boss Simon Dean: 'Changed level of risk' in baby care

A changed level of risk in maternity services in north Wales meant the health board did not press ahead with planned changes, its interim boss has said.

Simon Dean told BBC News Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board had recruited enough doctors to keep services in place.

But he warned this solution may not be sustainable and there was no long-term plan in place.

Mr Dean told BBC Radio Wales' Good Morning Wales programme services had been stabilised in the immediate period and the matter would be discussed again with the relevant authorities and the public.
