Protesters outside the meeting on St Asaph Business Park 


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.

Banner waving campaigners urging Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board bosses to ditch proposals to cut services at the special care baby unit at Glan Clwyd Hospital, staged a protest outside the meeting at St Asaph Business Park.
