Ambulance crews are often only seeing one patient each shift, with up to 30,000 hours of emergency capacity lost every month to handover delays, a committee heard.

The Senedd?s health committee quizzed representatives of the Welsh Ambulance Services University NHS Trust amid concerns about response times and delayed transfers of care.

Colin Dennis, chair of the trust?s board, said ambulance crews report they would regularly see five to eight patients in a shift five years ago but today it is one or, occasionally, two.


THE future of ?the most comprehensive collection of owls in the UK? at a now-closed Llandudno farm park has been secured.

The Owls Trust came to Bodafon Farm Park in 1999 at the beginning of the site?s 25 year-lease.

But Bodafon Farm Park closed last September, and its lease ended in January, with the land ownership now having reverted back to Mostyn Estates.

While the trust had previously been "guests" at Bodafon Farm Park with the agreement of Mostyn Estates, it has snow obtained a legally binding contract with the estate for its owls to remain at the site.

?However, we want to assure older people that they are not alone and that there are lots of organisations out there ready to offer their support.

A NEW sushi takeaway is set to open in Llandudno, after a planning application was approved.

The plans, submitted by Edvard Ivanian, will see the conversion of the former New Skin Tattoo Studio premises, at 57B Mostyn Avenue, into a takeaway.

At present, the restaurant will only be permitted to serve cold food, with no external area for food and drink provision until further approval is granted.

The plans have divided public opinion, with some residents in favour of a new takeaway in the area, while others say it impacts their quality of life.

Plans for this skyline dominating landmark in historic town divides opinion
Civic Hall plans have been submitted to Conwy county council

Plans for an ?apart-hotel? and a food hall at a former Conwy library have received a mixed response from residents - with some fearing parking could worsen in the town. Developer Nautical Point has submitted two planning applications to Conwy?s planning department, seeking permission for 15 apart-hotel units at the grade-two listed Civic Hall, as well as an artisan food hall with stalls.

As the council's 'preferred bidder', Nautical Point is believed to have reached an agreement with Conwy over the purchase of the council-owned building, should planning permission be agreed. Cash-strapped Conwy is currently reviewing its estate with a view to raising much-needed funds by selling several of its historic buildings, including its Bodlondeb HQ.
