It is imperative that everyone who has contacted us with their experiences of the service changes now email:
Joanne is the Hywel Dda Health Board contact for the impact on patients of the service changes and works with Mike Ponton who is on the board and will be looking into how the service changes have impacted on you all and communicating with the minister during the review.
This is really important so please email her now if you want your voices heard and the changes reversed even if you have submitted something to the Community Health Council before. Tell anyone who may not see this post but has a story to tell.
