Plans to massively overhaul health care in West Wales
Following a public consultation in summer 2018 Hywel Dda University Health Board decided to vote in favour of a plan that
would see the development of a new hospital between St Clears in Carmarthenshire and Narberth in Pembrokeshire.
However, the main topic on most people’s minds is likely to be what it means for the existing sites of Glangwili and Withybush.
According to the health board: “Both of those hospitals will have GP-led minor injury units and a range of other services as part of community networks of care, which also include integrated care centres and other community-based services. The current hospital services at Bronglais Hospital in Aberystwyth and Prince Philip Hospital in Llanelli will be further developed.” The health board has said the plan to reshape the way people receive medical treatment in west Wales is part of an “ongoing process” that is now under way with an engagement exercise. Anyone can have their say on the plans for the new
hospital and where exactly it should be located by taking part in the engagement process online at: or email: and by calling 01554 899056.                                                                                            The engagement exercise will run until Monday 21 June.
