Nia questioning hospital chiefs about ambulance resources and improving staff recruitment strategies

Speaking up at the recent public information day held at the Selwyn Samuel Centre, Nia questioned Hywel Dda Health Board’s Director of Medical Services and Director of Planning about over-stretched ambulance resources and improving recruitment

She said,  “You have said that it is not money but rather the difficulty of attracting  qualified staff that is driving the centralisation of services.  What about developing closer links with the new medical school in Swansea, and really trying to offer doctors attractive packages to encourage them to come here?

And what calculations have you made about the additional costs of acquiring and running more ambulances to transport patients to Glangwili or Withybush, if services are no longer offered at Prince Philip Hospital? What about using the money instead to pay for more specialists in Prince Philip Hospital.”
