Ward 5 closure decision still under review!!!
A further 21 Beds are to be removed from Prince Philip Hospital by the Hywell Dda Local Health Board without consulting any of the stakeholders in question despite assurances that no changes would be made without full consultation.
Both Llanelli Town and Rural Councils are making a strong protest over what is seen as a dictatorial attitude by the Board without considering the needs of the local Population.
Are the management at Hywel Dda fit to provide a safe service either now or in the future?
We must act before the Hospital is destroyed piecemeal.
Llanelli is the Biggest Town in Carmarthenshire
Llanelli is the 5th Largest Town In Wales - 60,000 People
Our Hospital IS The Centre Of Our Community
To Centralise Our Services in Carmarthen
Many Hospital Services Have Already Been Removed
Many More Are To Be Transferred
Soon Most Us Will Have To Go Outside Llanelli for Treatment
Over 17 Miles To Be Treated (and 17 miles to get home)
It Takes Hours To Get To Carmarthen By Public Transport
We Still Have No Maternity Unit
Our Health Authority Is Ignoring Llanelli To Save Money
This May Cost Lives
