Welcome to the Princess of Wales Direct facebook group www.facebook.com/POWDirect
Janice and I have set up this group to ensure a clear and honest debate about the future of the Princess of Wales hospital in Bridgend.
The ‘Changing for the Better’ consultation document sets out the challenges that the NHS faces in South Wales and the need to ensure high-quality, safe and accessible health services for people in Wales. At this point in time, it is not clear what this means for the Princess of Wales hospital.
The hospital will not close although there may be changes to services. The proposals lay out an option for the Princess of Wales to become a regional centre, with extra investment of resources, serving a wider population. It is not clear what changes would be made if the Princess of Wales does not become a regional centre and we are seeking further information on this.
The Princess of Wales is our local hospital and the highest quality of care for patients must be at the forefront of this vitally important debate.
We will be listening carefully to people’s views and representing the aspirations and concerns of people of Bridgend and will keep you up to date through the Princess of Wales Direct facebook page.
