Letter from chair of Keep Llangollen Special

Mike Edwards, chair of the group Keep Llangollen Special, has sent in this letter concerning the ongoing saga of the future of health service in the town:

"Speaking recently Mary Burrows the CEO of Betsi Cadwaladr talking about the Woodlands(Riverside Lodge) site said: 'No decision has yet been made. We still have to make a decision whether we want to build a facility in Llangollen. It may be the preferred site if such a facility was built, but we need to establish need and engage with the community before that. There is a formal process that we have to follow.'

"This clearly shows that despite the fact that Community Hospital will close early in 2013 Llangollen is not certain to have a replacement Health Centre be it in 2015 or whenever! Mary Burrows is now talking about "ESTABLISHING NEED" despite assurances she previously gave in correspondence to Ken Skates AM.

"This heightens KLS' concerns about the Health Boards proposals which will lead to increased vehicle journeys for patients and their families. This is clearly in breach of Welsh Government's sustainability policies.

"We would be grateful if you could bring this to the attention of residents, please?"
Mike Edwards
