Between 8th April and 20th May 2019 Swansea Bay University Health Board will be engaging with patients following the request from Amman Tawe Partnership, which provides local GP services, to transfer services to their neighbouring practice premises.
The GP practice has identified that the premises in Cwmllynfell are not fit for purpose and also that transferring services would improve sustainability by allowing full use of neighbouring sites and increased access to health professionals.
The Health Board and GP Practice would wish to work with the population to scope how patients can safely and effectively continue to access general medical services and Swansea Bay University Health Board would wish to understand the impact of this on local needs. It is recognised that if this proposal is supported there would be a need for effective alternative community transport arrangements to be put in place.
The range and scope of engagement has been agreed with the Swansea Bay Community Health Council. An engagement document is available to download below.
You are welcome to attend the drop in sessions being held at Neuadd Cwmllynfell Welfare Hall with the Community Health Council on the following dates and times:
Thursday 11th April 2019 - 9:00 – 1.00 pm
Monday 29th April 2019 - 4.00 – 6.30pm
Thursday 2nd May 2019 - 12.00 – 16:30 pm
