WELCOME MID-WALES HEALTH A DECENT HEALTH SERVICE FOR THE PEOPLE OF MID-WALES DELIVERED IN MID-WALES
WHERE ARE WE NOW? BRONGLAIS – From 2001 to 2007 Bronglais was amongst top 40 hospitals in UK - BUT Beds- 25% cut 2007 to 2012 LACK OF STAFF- Hospital closures De-skilling of staff- Afallon Ward closure Lack of facilities- Reduction of front of house Lack of theatre capacity
Health Board Strategy? Disinvestment in secondary care to provide resources in Primary and Community Care. Note- There are proposed service enhancement plans for other hospitals in HDdHB area. Where is evidence of coherent plan for all Bronglais patient catchment area Board
Health Board Strategy? Where is the evidence of investment in Primary Community Care? GP’s already at capacity. A different strategy is required which builds up services in Bronglais to use as community resources.
Community Hospitals Loss of community beds in Ceredigion not matched by investment in other services. Is closure of Community Hospitals consistent with Health Board Plans to provide more health care in the community? Current capacity must be maintained until there is strong evidence of alternative community services

Proposed Motions Despite assurance from the Minister that she would instruct the Health Boards of Betsi Cadwaladr, Powys and Hywel Dda to work together to produce and enact a strategic health plan for Mid-Wales, the Boards have not done so. This meeting now calls upon the Minister:- 1)to re-arrange the territories, responsibilities and the resources of these three Boards in such a way as to create an authority solely responsible for the health care of the people of Mid-Wales; 2)to ensure that Bronglais hospital, within such an authority, be developed and resourced as a stand-alone provider of secondary care for the people in the West of mid-Wales, obviating the need to travel to the A55 or M4 corridors other than for tertiary care.
