Meeting will discuss town's new health centre plans

Health board officials have explained the reason behind a meeting of an organisation called the Stakeholder Reference Group at Llangollen Pavilion next month.

Llanblogger has had sight of an invitation to the meeting on the afternoon of Wednesday, September 11.
However, it wasn’t clear from the invitation who exactly belongs to the group, what the exact purpose of the meeting is and who is entitled to attend.
We sought and explanation from the Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board, which issued the invitation, and a spokesperson said: “The Stakeholder Reference Group is a group of local stakeholders for the South Denbighshire and South Wrexham localities who have met a number of times over the past two years in workshop style meetings to consider and review the proposals for changes to healthcare services in the Llangollen area. 
“The invited group has included local elected members, representatives from Denbighshire and Wrexham Social Services, the Llangollen Hospital Association of Friends, the Llangollen GP practice, the CHC, the DVSC and AVOW, acting on behalf of the third sector, and the leads within the health boards for primary care services amongst others. 
“One of the proposals was the development of a Primary Care Resource Centre – or more simply a Health Centre - within Llangollen.
“It is intended that the Stakeholder Reference Group event on the 11th of September at The Pavilion will provide an opportunity for the current plans for the Health Centre to be presented back to the group and for an update from the Health Board to be given on some of the issues raised at a public presentation of the plans which was held on the 11th June in the Town Hall.”
The spokesperson is still checking whether llanblogger will be able to be there to cover the meeting.
