Baby unit shake-up

20th August 2012

A consultation on plans to base a north Wales help group for babies needing intensive care in England rather than Wales has started.

Glan Clwyd's Special Care Baby Unit support group and the charity, Cuddles (Care Understanding Devotion to Duty for the Lives of the Extremely Small) have opposed plans which would affect babies who need intensive care at the hospitals in Bodelwyddan, Denbighshire, and at Wrexham Maelor Hospital. Members "strongly" protest against the idea of making parents travel long journeys from their homes to a hospital in the Wirral.
