P-04-466 Medical Emergency - Preventing the introduction of a poorer Health Service for North Wales

Petition wording:


We the undersigned call on the National Assembly for Wales to urge the Welsh Government to ensure that the proposals contained within the Betsi Cadwalader University Health Board consultation- “Health Care in North Wales is Changing“ does not result in poorer health provision and unnecessary deaths and suffering.

The proposals will have a detrimental effect on most areas of health provision and emergency services and in no way can the proposals be an improvement as is intimated. Already experiencing meltdown, the Health Service in Wales will head towards collapse, if these proposals are implemented in their present form

The current BCUHB consultation proposals in relation to Health Care in North Wales appear to be detrimental to general health provision and the safety of our communities. Accessibility, X-ray provision, Minor Injuries ,Mental Health, the Ambulance Services, the Out of Hours service and the ability of GP’s to deliver an integrated service are going to be particularly hard hit by the proposals - as they are diametrically at odds with the Welsh Govt’s vision in relation to the documents “Together for Health”, “Setting the Direction”, and “Delivering Emergency Care Services” - it appears also to be at odds with the “Compact” announced by the Health Minister on the 25th of September 2012.
