Residents in the Gwendraeth Valley are invited to take part in public drop-in events to share their thoughts on Hywel Dda University Health Board's plans for a new health and wellbeing centre at Cross Hands.

As part of the health board's commitment to continuous engagement with local communities, residents will have the opportunity to chat with health officials at Tumble Hall on Monday, July 8 from 4pm until 6pm and Cross Hands Working Mens Club on Tuesday, July 9 from 4pm until 6pm.

Rhian Dawson, Interim County Director and Commissioner for Carmarthenshire, said: “Following a number of similar discussions at the start of the year, our local communities in the Gwendraeth Valley have told us that they would like to have further opportunities to talk about our plans for local health and care provision and to see our designs for the new Cross Hands Health and Wellbeing Centre.

“So we’re pleased to once again extend an invitation to anyone who would like to drop in at one of these three events and speak with us about the healthcare issues that matter the most to them. 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.
