Tonight's headlines: Claims Welsh patients' lives will be at risk

:00:00.:00:11.

if an A department in England is moved further away

:00:12.:00:13.

And a man is in a serious condition after slitting

:00:14.:00:17.

his throat in the dock at Haverfordwest Magistrates Court.

:00:18.:00:36.

Welsh lives could be put at risk if an Accident and Emergency

:00:37.:00:40.

department is relocated from Shrewsbury in Shropshire

:00:41.:00:42.

to Telford, which is further away from the Welsh border.

:00:43.:00:44.

That's according to the MP for Montgomeryshire, Glyn Davies.

:00:45.:00:46.

He's taken part in a debate in Westminster tonight

:00:47.:00:49.

It's a short walk for Joy Jones from Newtown to her local cafe but

:00:50.:01:04.

getting to her nearest accident and emergency department is not easy.

:01:05.:01:09.

She knows the journey to the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital too well. Person

:01:14.:01:18.

department for her in Wales so like many others in this area she has to

:01:19.:01:23.

travel over the border. During Joshua's childhood she made many a

:01:24.:01:27.

junior in a Amblin 's. It is terrifying because you are very

:01:28.:01:31.

frightened for his life and what's going to happen. You start counting

:01:32.:01:37.

down the miles and trying to work out where you were on the road. It's

:01:38.:01:44.

very frightening in the night and it feels even more frightening. Joy

:01:45.:01:47.

believed in the event of an actual emergency time as a critical factor

:01:48.:01:52.

and people could end up dying on the road trying to reach the AMD

:01:53.:01:57.

department in Telford. I headed out to see how long the journey would

:01:58.:02:00.

take. I have just driven past Welshpool and 17 miles from screws

:02:01.:02:05.

buddy. It's all single track road so it's slow journey. If the AMD

:02:06.:02:10.

department was moved to Telford my sat nav tells me I would have 34

:02:11.:02:18.

mile journey. So it will effectively double the distance. The two main

:02:19.:02:22.

hospitals in Shropshire service only around 400,000 people and they have

been problems recruiting consultants so and plans it has to be

reorganised. The trust says when emergency department would put

:02:32.:02:34.

group for the area last month. This evening debate was held in the House

:02:49.:02:51.

of Commons on services in Shropshire and mid Wales. The MPs gone Richard

:02:52.:02:57.

described his constituents as being flabbergasted by the latest

:02:58.:03:02.

decision. All I want is up for them in give us an idea how we can move

:03:03.:03:05.

forward from what is a shambles which is putting the interests of my

:03:06.:03:13.

constituents, to put their care at the centre of the plans we have in

:03:14.:03:15.

structure. Tonight the minister announced that the joint

:03:16.:03:19.

commissioning group will meet next week to start the review of the

:03:20.:03:22.

options which could last up to three months. He also stated a new

:03:23.:03:27.

:04:14.:04:20.

Paramedics and the court. He lost consciousness and a lot of lead and
