Surgery move from north Wales

5th October 2007

A public meeting is being held over plans to change brain services in north Wales with campaigners saying there is “huge disquiet� over the proposal.

The Welsh Assembly says no decision has been made over plans for patients to travel to Swansea or Cardiff rather than Liverpool for treatment.

At present adult neurosurgery in Wales is carried out in Cardiff and Swansea but patients from north Wales travel to the Walton Centre for Neurology and Neurosurgery in Liverpool for treatment. More than 150 people are expected at a public meeting in Colwyn Bay to quiz health officials over any changes.
