Michael Taylor started this petition to Mark Drakeford and

Currently in the UK if you are a parent and your child is sick or unwell and needs hospital treatment, only one parent can accompany the child in the hospital! I want to change this and allow both parents to be able to be with their baby or child when such an unfortunate event happens. Considering that we are seeing huge crowd attendances in the thousands at places like Royal Ascot, Wimbledon & Euro 2020. Politicians have also seen having gatherings without face masks etc. 

As I sat last night in the car park of the University Hospital of Wales Cardiff wondering and worrying about the health of my 14-month-old baby as only one parent was allowed in with him. It gave me time to think 'One rule for one and one for another', I can't even begin to imagine in more serious cases the despair other parents have had to go through when being turned away at the hospital door, not knowing the condition or being able to support their baby or child.

I know I can't be the only person to have gone through this experience and felt completely angered and let down by the current system in place and so I would really like it if you could please sign this petition and make a change so other parents don't have to experience this if an unfortunate event was to happen. If we can get enough signatures, hopefully it can get the attention of the Welsh and English government and force them into making changes.
