All sessions will take place from 3pm until 6pm.

Rhian Dawson, Interim County Director and Commissioner for Carmarthenshire, said: “We’re pleased to invite local residents in the Amman and Gwendraeth Valleys to come and speak with us about the healthcare issues that matter the most to them, particularly in relation to taking forward future capital development projects such as the Cross Hands Integrated Primary and Community Care Centre and to discuss care provision at Amman Valley Hospital.

"We will continue to reach out to people including our staff, patients, stakeholders, the organisations we work with and the wider population in line with our commitment to continuous engagement.”

Further events will be held across each of the health board’s three counties soon to continuously engage with our population.
