'Commitment' to maintaining services at Withybush hospital
A Pembrokeshire hospital will rely on GPs in order to maintain its 24-hour A&E cover in future.
Hywel Dda health board said it is keeping the full service at Withybush hospital after a document leaked online suggested it would be cut.
The current model, under which the service is covered by A&E specialists, will continue until May.
The health board said there will then be a "new way of working", although negotiations with GPs are continuing.
This new system is likely to rely on GP cover.
Dr Iain Robertson-Steel, associate medical director for quality and safety at Hywel Dda, said there was a commitment to maintain services at Withybush.
