Two community hospitals could close in Wales

19th July 2012

Plans to restructure the health service in north wales could see the closure of two community hospitals, and minor injury accident departments may shut at other hospitals.

Blaenau Ffestiniog and Flint community hospitals have been earmarked for possible closure and Ysbyty Glan Clwyd, Bodelwyddan, Denbighshire, could also lose non-elective surgery under the proposals to be discussed by the Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board (BCUHB). However, maternity and paediatric services will remain largely unchanged after the plans proved controversial when first suggested by the board.
