P-06-1370 Save overnight minor injuries provision at Nevill Hall Hospital in Abergavenny
This petition was submitted by Richard John, having collected a total of 5,182 signatures.
Text of Petition:
Aneurin Bevan University Health Board has set out plans to close its Minor Injuries Unit at Nevill Hall Hospital overnight. This will mean that between 1am and 7am in the entire health board area, there will be just one open Minor Injuries Unit - at the Royal Gwent Hospital in Newport.
This change would significantly increase travel times for residents in Blaenau Gwent, Monmouthshire, Torfaen and parts of Caerphilly. The change would make the Royal Gwent and the Grange even busier.
The health board has opened a consultation on the proposal: https://abuhb.nhs.wales/about-us/engagement/public-engagement-consultation/current-opportunities/provision-of-minor-injury-unit-services-8-week-engagement/.
