BRONGLAIS Hospital will continue to undertake colorectal surgery if health chiefs can recruit two consultants to replace retiring staff, Hywel Dda Health Board’s chief executive has insisted.
But the claim by Trevor Purt when he addressed Ceredigion councillors was questioned by Cllr Gareth Lloyd,
who pointed out the word “IF” in his statement.
Mr Purt said the health board wanted to ensure that colo-rectal and abdominal surgery could be performed at Bronglais Hospital and said he had never suggested the colo-rectal unit would close.
However, he did admit that colo-rectal cancer surgery would be centralised under the board’s preferred option.
While councillors welcomed the fact that the majority of colo-rectal surgery would remain at Bronglais, there was
concern that it was dependent on the health board successfully recruiting staff.
Although medical director Dr Simon Mahon said the board was confident of recruiting staff, he had earlier said that advice to the board had suggested it was “highly unlikely” they would be able to recruit the two general surgeons necessary.
