Committee for the Improvement of Hospital Services
We have already lost Services since 2007 but Hywel Dda Health Board has not consulted us as to why many of these have been closed.
They have not consulted anyone in Llanelli at all!!!!
Some examples are as follows:
Ear Nose and Throat
Major Accident & Emergency downgraded to Minor Accident & Emergency
Elective General Surgery
Gastrointestinal Cancer Surgery
There used to be 5 ITU beds and 4 HDU beds
There is now only 1 ITU bed and 4 HDU bed (All felexible)
It is expected that Orthopaedic Surgery will go.
The pathologist has already moved part time to Swansea........... and consequently
Postmortems have also gone.......(More are to follow).................
