When will the review of the mother and baby unit in Swansea Bay take place, and who will be conducting the review?

Answered by Deputy Minister for Mental Health and Wellbeing | Answered on 02/02/2022

It was agreed there would be a review of the Tonna MBU, with an assessment after 12 months as to whether the Tonna site continues to meet all the requirements for a permanent MBU solution in South Wales. In April 2022, the unit will have been open for 12 months. The review will be led by the Welsh Health Specialised Services Committee (WHSSC) in their role as service commissioners. Timelines on the review will be agreed with Welsh Government and the National Clinical Lead for Perinatal Mental Health.
