To implement this type of policy you need to have someone who has had experience of doing this previously.
So how are they currently removing the services at Llanelli without consulting anyone as they are legally suppose to do?
Quite simple really and rather clever..... they wait for the Senior Surgons to leave or retire and then don't replace them in Llanelli but re-locate them to other hospitals (Carmarthen) and say they cannot get doctors to work in Llanelli.
Of course as they don't advertise the posts in Llanelli the departments close down. If the departments are no longer viable you don't have to consult wth the public.
This is a cynical abuse of power.
What we want is a return to the provision of General Surgery, General Medicine and Emergency Surgery.
This will in turn support ourServices for an Accident and Emergency Department.
We deserve nothing less.
