The National Assembly for Wales’ Health, Wellbeing and Local Government Committee is undertaking a short inquiry into Neonatal Care.

The Committee will look at the progress in delivery of the All Wales Neonatal Standards and progress in implementing the recommendations of the expert group on Neonatal Services, which include:

  • Arrangements for monitoring the implementation of the All Wales Neonatal Standards, in line with the British Association of Perinatal Medicine’s staffing standards and the Health Commission Wales review.
  • The Welsh Government’s long term strategy for improving neonatal care and whether it is seen as an integrated part of maternity services.
  • Consideration of how the Welsh Government plans to increase the number of neonatal nurses, midwives and neonatal consultants.
  • Funding arrangements for the development of round-the-clock access to dedicated neonatal transport services available to all units in Wales.
  • Increased support for parents.
  • The impact of NHS reforms on neonatal services in Wales.
  • Screening for hearing loss.
