North Wales neonatal care review decision overturned

A decision to transfer specialist care for some of sickest and most premature babies in north Wales to England has been overturned by the first minister.

Carwyn Jones said he accepted an independent review's suggestion that intensive care for babies be centralised at one north Wales site.

But he said some babies needing the highest care level will need to go to Arrowe Park hospital on the Wirral.

The original decision was taken due to lack of specialist staff.

Roger Pinney reports.
