HYWEL DDA U UNIVERSITY HEALTH BOARD is pleased to confirm the successful appointment of a GP group to provide medical services for the patients of Andrew Street Practice in Llanelli following Dr Prabodh Devichand’s retirement. The Rosedale Medical Group will take over from Dr Devichand when he retires on the 30 September 2015. Dr Devichand will, however, continue to work alongside the new GPs following his retirement. This means that patients registered with Andrew Street Practice will continue to access services as they have always done and do not need to do anything further.

Elaine Lorton, Assistant Director of Primary Care for Hywel Dda UHB, said: “I am pleased that we are able to reassure patients registered with Andrew Street Practice that GP services will continue under the Rosedale Medical Group after Dr Devichand retires. “Drs Perry, Mellin and Williams bring with them great experience in providing general medical services and I hope this ends any uncertainty over the future of the practice. “I’d like to thank the patients of Andrew Street Practice who took the time to let us know their feedback through our questionnaire and public meeting.

We fully recognised the strength of feeling that patients wished to remain with Andrew Street Practice and I am pleased that Hywel Dda UHB can provide that reassurance today.” Dr Huw Perry, Dr Kristy Mellin, and Dr Paul Williams of Rosedale Medical Group are excited to meet the patients of Llanelli. They are very much looking forward to working with Dr Devichand in the near future, in order to continue to provide excellent care to the patients of Andrew Street Surgery. A meeting has being arranged by the practice to commence at 7.15pm on 23 September at the Lliedi Suite, Selwyn Samuel Centre, Llanelli when patients can meet with both the new GPs and Dr Devichand. Hywel Dda UHB will be writing directly to patients registered with Andrew Street Practice shortly to confirm the news.

A 65-YEAR-OLD man has collapsed while waiting for an appointment in a job centre in south Wales. He was found slumped in his chair at 9.30am on Friday in Llanelli.

The DWP said: “Our thoughts and those of the staff at Llanelli Jobcentre are with the family and friends at this time.”

The Llanelli Herald understands that he was waiting for an appointment to discuss Jobseeker’s Allowance after being declared fit for work earlier this year.

Staff and customers rushed to help, but they were unable to get a response so lay him on the floor.

They started CPR and an ambulance was called while the job centre was evacuated, but paramedics declared him dead at the scene. A witness told The Metro newspaper: “I didn’t know him myself, but the man who was sat next to me told me that he had grown up with the guy.

“The man next to me told me that the poor guy had diabetes and had been declared fit for work by the job centre earlier in the year but he was obviously ill.

“The ambulance came but he sadly died and they had to take his body out of the job centre, it was awful.

“We were all very shook up; it was a horrible situation that should have never happened. The job centre is all shut down now.’

The Welsh Ambulance Service confirmed to The Herald: “We were called on Friday November 15 at approximately 9.33am to reports of a person needing urgent medical attention on Stepney Street in central Llanelli. ‘We responded with one rapid response vehicle, one specialised medical vehicle and one emergency ambulance.’
