Hepatitis fear at Welsh hospitals as patients infected

Around 5,000 women treated at Welsh hospitals are being contacted after a healthcare worker infected two patients with the Hepatitis C virus.

The retired obstetrics and gynaecology worker is known to have passed on the infection to the patients at a Welsh hospital between 1984 and 2003.

The individual mainly worked at Caerphilly District Miners Hospital.

But they also spent time at Wrexham Maelor Hospital and the old East Glamorgan Hospital near Pontypridd.

Health correspondent Owain Clarke reports.
