Stop the closure of the antenatal and delivery wards at Royal Glamorgan Hospital
Why is this important?
It is both necessary and vital to the well being and safe delivery of babies. It is extremely busy and well used facility with lovely caring staff. Women will now be forced to travel twice the distance to give birth. The only Hospital in Cardiff cant cope with demand and since closing a delivery ward in Royal Glamorgan women are being turned away due to no space.
The skeleton staff left are overworked and having to cope without necessary resources. If this unit closes it puts the welfare of women and babies at risk, causes more stress, makes families travel further and puts remaining hospitals under more pressure.
