Hospital services public consultation

Welcome to the South Wales Programme, which is working to secure the future of four hospital services for people living in South Wales and South Powys.
 
On this website you will find details of the South Wales Programme and the options for the future of consultant-led maternity services, neonatal care, inpatient children's service and emergency medicine (A&E) at hospitals in South Wales. The public consultation is now closed.
 
The South Wales Programme is made up of the five South Wales health boards – Abertawe Bro Morgannwg, Aneurin Bevan, Cardiff and Vale, Cwm Taf and Powys – working with the Welsh Ambulance Service to create safe and sustainable hospital services for people living in South Wales and South Powys.

The programme’s work has been led by frontline clinicians – doctors, nurses, midwives and therapists – with the aim of providing high quality and safe specialist hospital services which improve the care  of the sickest and most seriously injured patients.

All the documents relating to the public consultation can be found on this website.
 

Health boards and the Welsh Ambulance Services NHS Trust held special board meetings on February 13 2014 to discuss the recommendations. Following a Programme Board meeting held on March 18, a further update has been published and is available here.
