Withybush Hospital: Children's unit hours cut 'temporary'

Plans to reduce the opening hours of a children's care unit in Pembrokeshire are temporary, a health board has insisted.

Hywel Dda University Health Board held a public meeting in Llanelli on Thursday and agreed the reduction should be made with "immediate effect".

It means the paediatric ambulatory care unit at Withybush Hospital will be open from 10:00 GMT to 18:00 instead of 10:00 to 22:00.

The health board's chief executive, Steve Moore, said the move was prompted by "short-term" staffing issues.
