Hywel Dda health changes: 'Hope' after NHS proposals referred

Controversial plans for big changes to the NHS in mid and west Wales have been referred to the Welsh government.

Hywel Dda Health Board wants to change accident and emergency care at Prince Philip Hospital in Llanelli.

The Special Care Baby Unit at Withybush Hospital in Haverfordwest would also close under some of its plans.

But Hywel Dda Community Health Council's (CHC) move will mean the decision is taken by ministers in Cardiff.

Cemlyn Davies reports and health correspondent Owain Clarke looks into what the move means.
