Pembrokeshire public urged to join Withybush Hospital protest

5:27pm Friday 11th April 2014

THE latest protest against controversial proposed changes to services at Withybush Hospital will take place on Sunday.

Organisers Save Withybush Hospital Action Team (SWAT) are hoping that thousands of people will again turn out to register their opposition to the removal of the Special Care Baby Unit at the hospital, as well as removing overnight paediatric services and some women's services.

The march takes place on Sunday April 13 starting at 11am in front of County Hall, which provides free parking at the weekend.

Those taking part are asked to be there by 10.50am. The march will go along Bridge Street and past Wilkinson. People can join the march outside Wilkinson if they wish. The march will move to Prendergast and to the hospital as in the previous march. Alternatively, organisers said people could park near Sir Thomas Picton and join the protest as it makes its way up Prendergast.

SWAT said: "A good showing is essential. One hour of your life might make all the difference."
