Liverpool Women's Hospital.

Whilst we await the recommendation of the Royal College of Paediatricians to our First Minister on moving Neonatal Intensive Care from North Wales to Arrowe Park perhaps we should reflect on this interesting little article from this week's Private Eye:

Once Arrowe Park's cots are full this is where our babies will go. The Care Quality Commission's most recent report in September states that improvements are required in:

  • People should get safe and appropriate care that meets their needs and supports their rights.
  • People should be cared for by staff who are properly qualified and able to do their job
  • There should be enough members of staff to keep people safe and meet their health and welfare needs 
These revelations that one of the biggest Maternity Hospital's in the UK is failing to provide adequate staffing and care MUST convince the First Minister that our babies are better off being cared for in Glan Clwyd and the Maelor rather than a failing privatised NHS system in England.
