Nia Griffith MP spoke up at the recent AGM of the Committee for the Improvement of Hospital Services (SOSPPAN),

“ I would like to thank all those who helped to get copies of the Hywel Dda Health Board consultation survey out to local residents, so they had the chance to send in their views. As well as handing copies out Llanelli town centre and outside Morrison’s, people also took copies along to clubs, associations and flu jab clinics. It seemed the Health Board had made little effort to distribute copies, but people in Llanelli feel very strongly indeed about the hospital and deserve to have their views counted.”

“ But to be in a position to debate the future of our hospital services with the Health Board, it is all the homework that counts – getting all the facts and figures together, asking questions, liaising with expert health consultants and with staff on the frontline – so thanks to the committee and the local councils for all their efforts. I have sent in my own response to the Health Board consultation and will continue to press the Health Board on vital issues like risk assessment and ambulance times, which they need to take into account before making any decisions.”
