It has been business as usual for the majority of health services across Hywel Dda University Health Board today. Thanks to the efforts of clinical teams and staff the health board has managed to maintain the majority of clinics. A small number of clinics have been postponed for Friday 2 March 2018, in anticipation of continued adverse weather tomorrow.
We’d like to thank patients for letting us know they were unable to attend their appointments due to the weather. Every effort is being made to reschedule any postponed appointments as quickly as possible.
With the adverse weather potentially continuing during the next few days there may be more cancellations and patients should ring the number on their appointment letter to check before attempting to attend clinics or by Outpatient Department Contact Centre on 0300 3039642 . (08:00-17:00). This number covers all sites.
The cancelled clinics are:
• Opthalmology, Crymych Health Care Centre, Pembrokeshire
• General Surgery, Mr Beasley, Glangwili Hospital, Carmarthen
• Rheumatology, Withybush Hospital, Pembrokeshire
Steve Moore, Chief Executive at Hywel Dda University Health Board, said: “We are still able to operate a number of elective and outpatient clinics, however a small number have had to be cancelled due to the adverse weather. If you have an appointment and you are unable to travel, please call 0300 303964 number to let us know. By calling this number we can also provide you with the latest information regarding your appointment.”
“Staff experiencing travel problems have been assisted in getting to work by utilising 4x4s helping us to continue as normal with as many services as possible. We’d like to thank all who have assisted staff and patients today with their travel and we urge everyone to keep safe and warm through this period.”
