Written by | January 26, 2014 | 0

Wales Jan 26 : About 1,000 people have marched against plans to centralise specialist care for babies born in west Wales.

The changes would mean that the special care baby unit at Withybush hospital in Haverfordwest, Pembrokeshire, would close.

Hywel Dda health board said the changes – announced by the health minister on Tuesday – would provide a better level of care.

But protesters said they would put lives at risk.

Opponents marched through Haverfordwest on Sunday morning to voice their concerns.
