HYWEL Dda Health Board has announced a new event date in Lampeter as it extends its ‘listening’ exercise into the future of health services in the area.

Following complaints that the previous dates ran during work times, finishing at 5pm in mosts cases, working people did not get a chance to have their say over proposed changes to the service.

A series of events running from 2pm to 8pm will include a meeting at The Arts Hall at Trinity Saint David campus in Lampeter on Tuesday, 24 April.

More than 1,000 people visited one of the eight previous Meet The Health Board events. Director of Corporate Services Chris Wright said: “We have undertaken what is an unprecedented amount of engagement in Wales at this early pre-consultation phase, to speak and listen to as many people as possible. It’s not just about counting the number of people responding, but ensuring we have quality conversations and that feedback is captured in order to inform the options that go forward for consultation later in the year.

“The board will be undertaking its own evaluation to ensure we have increased people’s understanding and awareness of the challenges being faced and to ensure they know this is their opportunity to get more involved, should they want to.”

HYWEL Dda Health Board’s handling of its planning for the future of health services has been a “PR disaster”, a patient watchdog has heard.

And Alun Lloyd Jones, a member of the Ceredigion committee of the Hywel Dda Community Health Council and Ceredigion councillor, insisted that the health board had lost the confidence of the public, staff and councils over the way it has dealt with its drawing-up of options for the future of health services.

The health board is still in “pre-consultation engagement” over the future organisation of hospital services and community services throughout the Hywel Dda area, but despite insisting that no final decisions have been made, there has been an angry backlash against suggestions that hospital services could be centralised, including acute Bronglais services.

WELSH Labour has accused Ceredigion AM Elin Jones of scaremongering over the future of Bronglais Hospital, but has again refused to issue assurances about the future of the hospital’s services.

But Ms Jones issued a furious response and accused Labour of being “out of touch with reality” and of trying to “discredit” the concerns of the 800 protesters who descended on Cardiff and the 8,000 people who signed the Cambrian News petition.

However, while Ms Watson and Ms Evans both insisted that the hospital will not be closed and will remain as a district general hospital, they made no comments about the fears that services could be removed from Bronglais.
Ms Watson accused Ms Jones of scaring residents in mid Wales over the future of the hospital. She said: “She is preying on our most vulnerable citizens by whipping up a frenzy of unnecessary fear. How can someone stand for leadership of a political party when she deliberately misleads patients in her own constitutency?

“It is grossly irresponsible. Elin Jones and Plaid Cymru have become obsessed with this desperate scaremongering and it should stop now.”

HUNDREDS of protesters travelled from mid Wales to Cardiff last Wednesday to demand that the Welsh health minister protects services at Bronglais Hospital in one of the largest protests the Senedd has ever seen.

And with angry residents from Aberystwyth, Aberaeron, Tregaron, Machynlleth, Llanidloes, Dolgellau and Tywyn making their opposition to any potential loss of services heard, Lord Elystan-Morgan also hit out at Hywel Dda Health Board accusing board chiefs of continuing a policy of running down Bronglais and “accelerating it with gusto”.

While Assembly Members Ceredigion AM Elin Jones, of Plaid Cymru, Lib Dem’s Mid and West Wales AM William Powell and Welsh Conservative Russell George, Montgomeryshire AM, were all given a rousing ovation for their support for Bronglais, Labour Mid and West Wales AM Joyce Watson was forced to abandon her speech after she was barracked and jeered by protesters, who reacted angrily to her claim that “the Welsh Government has no plans to downgrade Bronglais”.

Lord Elystan-Morgan praised protesters for their support for Bronglais and said it was vital that Hywel Dda and the Welsh Government appreciate the importance of Bronglais to mid Wales and accused Hywel Dda of “utter pig-headedness” in their dealings with the public and hospital staff which had forced people to protest outside the National Assembly.

HYWEL Dda Health Board paid a private company around £150,000 to organise meetings for medical staff to help draw up plans for the future of health services, it has admitted.

The health board, which is facing an estimated £4m overspend on its budget, paid Capgemini the fee for just four months work claiming that it needed the private company’s “specialist independent skills”.

Ceredigion AM Elin Jones has questioned the spending and accused the health board of wasting the money as they have not listened to health professionals from Bronglais in drawing up plans for the future of the hospital’s services.

She said: “I’m staggered that the Hywel Dda Health Board contracted with a multinational company to facilitate discussions with its own staff.

“Obviously this was a wasted exercise since the health board has ignored the views of its own clinical staff at Bronglais, as expressed in their recent letter highlighting their concerns about plans to centralise key healthcare services.”

Although admitting the £150,000 contract with Capgemini, a health board spokesperson totally dismissed suggestions that the fee for Capgemini could be higher and would be based on a percentage of any cash savings identified with the health board’s plans for the future of health services.
