STOP CLOSURE OF GELLINUDD HOSPITAL
We/I support the Gellinudd Hospital League of Friends Campaign to stop the closure of Gellinudd Hospital, Pontardawe.
We/I firmly believe that the hospital should be an integral part of the ABM Health Board Strategy to provide "care in the community", especially with an ageing population, who will require a diverse range of care to meet their particular needs and personal circumstances.
Gellinudd Hospital being a relatively new hospital built in the 1990's, has 30 beds, 24 of which are self contained cubicles, so is ideally suited/designed to offer this medical, nursing care.
We/I agree that the doctors, nurses, physiotherapists, occupational therapy and support staff based at the hospital have provided a safe caring environment for the old, frail, vulnerable, ill patients of the highest standard for many years.
We/I agree that the local community cannot lose this most loved, cherished NHS asset.
This petition will be e-mailed to Abertawe Bor- Morgannwg Health Board before the end of the consultation period i.e. 7th May 2013
