After facing down calls to quit in Spring 2019 following a damning report into Cwm Taf maternity services, Welsh Cabinet Secretary for Health and Social Services Vaughan Gething AM pledged to improve the quality of maternity care in Wales.
At the second annual Wales & South West Maternity & Midwifery Festival, Gething outlined the Welsh Government’s plans for maternity services, discussed key areas of concern, praised the generous care that midwives provided before, during and after the birth of his son, and voiced his frustrations and concerns regarding Brexit’s potential impact on health and social care.
