The outcome of consultation on plans to merge trusts in Cardiff and the Vale of Glamorgan has been announced.

Welsh secretary Alun Michael said this week that the number of trusts will be cut from four to two, as a 'major step towards creating a single, integrated health service' for the area.

The two new trusts will unite University Hospital of Wales trust and Llandough Hospital and Community trust. Cardiff Community trust will merge with University Dental Hospital trust.

Plans to halve the number of trusts in Wales on 1 April are now complete.
