Rhondda residents make views felt on hospital reorganisation

June 8, 2013 5:34 PM

Another sunny day and another excellent show of support from residents keen to ensure that a full range of services are retained at the Royal Glamorgan hospital once the music stops and everything falls into place after the consultation stage of the "South Wales Programme."

Today the campaign took to the streets of Treorchy for the second rally in a series which aims to raise public awareness and get as many responses as possible together before the end of the consultation on 19th July.

RCT Welsh Liberal Democrat Campaign Manager Karen Roberts joined fellow Rhondda residents and elected representatives showing support for the campaign.

"The strength of feeling is obvious amongst residents across the Rhondda and Pontypridd. They want to see essential services retained at their local hospital.

"It is unfortunate that there is still some misinformation going around, and a lack of clarity over some aspects of the programme. It must be stressed that this is about certain consultant led and critical care services. There is no suggestion that A&E wiil close completely for example.

"The battle is to ensure that critical care services are provided at the Royal Glamorgan. People have to make their feelings clear to the health boards."
