Hospital replies to A&E ‘rumours’
Friday, 15 June 2012
A spokeswoman for the Princess of Wales Hospital has responded to speculation that the A&E unit there could be downgraded.
As The GEM went to press, we were contacted by a member of the public, and by the Welsh Conservative regional AM for south Wales west, Suzy Davies.
She stated that there were “rumours” among hospital staff that it might be downgraded.
She said she would be writing to Paul Roberts, the chief executive of the Abertawe Bro Morgannwg University Health Board.
In a response received as The GEM was going to press yesterday, a hospital spokeswoman said: “We are reviewing how we provide all our services in response to the Welsh Government’s vision for NHS Wales ‘Together for Health’.
“In addition, six health boards are jointly looking at some particularly fragile services through the south Wales programme – this includes emergency medicine services across the whole of south Wales.
“No decisions have been made about these services.”
The GEM will return to this subject next week in more detail.
