    Why is BBC Wales health reporting so crap 1

    On BBC Wales's Good Morning Chequebook - the programme where the solution to every story is apparently to spend more of my constituents' money - there was an interview this morning with the boss of the National Childbirth Trust on the alleged threat to ante-natal classes. A fair enough story, if true, and according to the BBC's UK news, there are 19 areas in England and Wales affected.

    The obvious question, then, was 'so which areas in Wales are affected?'.

    It didn't get asked.

    So I looked at the NCT website, and the Royal College of Midwives' website, to see if I could find out. Nothing on either of them. No answer on the BBC Wales website either.

    Crap health reporting from BBC Wales. Are any areas in Wales affected? Or is this actually an English-only health problem? I think we should be told.

    And you would think Wales's national broadcaster would want to know.
