Closure of the Intensive Care Unit within SCBU, Glan Clwyd
Betsi Cadwaladar have today released information that they intend on closing the Intensive Care Unit within the Special Care Baby Unit at Ysbyty Glan Clwyd and move it to Arrowe Park on the Wirral. Therefore all intensive treatment required for babies under 28 weeks will take place in Arrowe Park. This adds a huge amount of pressure to the children in need of this intesive therapy as well as added pressure onto the parents. A number of issues have been noted as a result of this proposal which include the risk this poses on the baby, the pressure of travelling to the Wirral from across Wales, the lack of equal opportunity as stated within the All Wales Neonatal Standards as the babies may be born in England as well as the possibility of the lack of welsh speaking nurses and doctors based at Arrowe Park are just a few of the issues. Please show your support by signing this petition in order for Cuddles Members to put this to the Betsi Cadawaladar Board. Thank-you.
