PRESTATYN Community Hospital is set to close, and special care baby services at Glan Clwyd Hospital look likely to be transferred to the Wirral as part of a massive shake-up of the local health service provision.
As a meeting to discuss the future of health provision taking place this morning (Friday) in St Asaph details of the changes have been revealed to the press.
New announcements include:
• Prestatyn Hospital to close and be replaced by a new Community Hospital serving North Denbighshire on the site of the Royal Alexandra Hospital, Rhyl.
• Advanced neo-natal services to be relocated to Arrowe Park making a saving of £300 per intensive care cot per day.
• Colwyn Bay Hospital's Minor Injuries Unit to close with X-Ray services retained.
• Llandudno to be made a 'hub hospital' with X-Ray services remaining, and being provided seven days a week.
