“Hywel Dda – Our Big NHS Change” – Drop In Events

“Hywel Dda – Our Big NHS Change” – Drop In Events

We have a once-in-a-lifetime chance to fundamentally change the way that we provide local healthcare services for the better – and we want to hear what you have to say about it.

“Hywel Dda – Our Big NHS Change” was officially launched at a meeting of the health board on Thursday 19 April 2018, marking the start of a 12-week public consultation aimed at making provision of local health and care better for our communities. 

We’re asking residents across Carmarthenshire, Ceredigion and Pembrokeshire, as well as the wider cross-border regions, to get involved and have your say on three proposals to improve the way we provide care for our population. Each proposal has been designed and tested by our clinicians to ensure that our services are safe, sustainable, accessible and kind for our generation and those to come.
To overcome the significant challenges faced by the NHS we want to radically change the way we provide local health care services so that people are accessing most of the care and treatment they need in their local community,
and are able to stay at home while they are getting treatment rather than having to go into hospital. Reducing the number of main hospitals will mean having fewer medical rotas to fill, making it easier to attract clinicians to come
and work for us; it will also mean shorter waiting times and fewer cancellations, and more money for local and community health services.

In all three of the proposals*,

  • Bronglais District General Hospital will continue to provide services for mid Wales;
  • a new major hospital will be built somewhere between Narberth and St Clears,
  • and there will be 10 community hubs across the Health Board area.

How can you get involved?
Hywel Dda University Health Board are holding a series of public drop in events across Carmarthenshire, Ceredigion and Pembrokeshire.
Our doctors, nurses and therapists want to talk to you about “Our big NHS Change” proposals for Carmarthenshire, Ceredigion and Pembrokeshire and listen to your views.
These are informal Drop In Events. Please come along at any time between 2pm and 7pm to find out more.
