The first protest presentation was on 26th Jan 2014: BBC News – Protest over Withybush hospital special care … and is led by SWAT (Save Withybush action Team)
and then on 18th June 2014: Walesonline – Withybush hospital ‘downgrade’: More than 700 protest … and Protesters fighting the reduction of services at Withybush …was on BBC News (BBC News – Hundreds in Senedd protest at Withybush baby unit…)
The Western Telegraph reported 5th March 2014 Pembrokeshire protesters take fight to save Withybush … and now 12 months later there will be more presentation on March 4th. The Pembrokeshire Herald reports 20th Feb 2015: Withybush Ward 10 Petition demo at the Welsh Assembly. Details of how to attend and book seats on the bus are included.
There is a problem. We don’t have enough money to do everything. And the political representation is not aligned with the health decision making unit. Perhaps a more reasonable and rational debate might occur if we had just one MP and WAM co-terminus with the Hywel Dda Trust… NHSreality feels the correct and best decision would have been a new build 6 years ago (rejected by a media led society) and second best would be development at Withybush rather than nearer Swansea at Carmarthen as currently planned… This is rationing at the top level: bottom up there would not be any rationing!
