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.

New ward extension opens at Werndale Hospital

Published

on

WERNDALE Hospital opens its £1millon ward extension, featuring a suite of new spacious patient en-suite rooms and additional light and airy ward space for new nurses’ stations, new technology and medical equipment, in pleasant and comfortable spaces. 

Werndale is part of Circle Health Group, the UK’s largest provider of private healthcare. The group is carrying out a £125 million redevelopment programme across its 50 hospitals in the UK.

Werndale has a strong history in the village of Bancyfelin, where is has been serving the local communities of Wales for over 32 years.

James Davies, Wales and Scarlets rugby player, from Bancyfelin, cut the ribbon to mark the official opening on Monday 1st August. His nickname “Cubby”, is reference to his brother’s nickname, “Fox”; this refers to the Fox & Hounds pub their parents ran in Bancyfelin, the village where they grew up. Staff and consultants were given the chance to view the new extension, with a small gathering to mark the occasion and celebrate all the hard work that has gone into this project over the last 12 months.

Jacky Jones, Executive Director of Werndale Hospital said: “The investment programme is an exciting opportunity to expand what we can offer to patients at Werndale. Our staff and consultants are delighted with this expansion which will allow us to meet the private healthcare needs of patients and families in Wales and will decrease waiting times which will positively impact the patient’s experience. Having the new patient rooms here increases our ward capacity by 20%, it is a great investment”.

Gaynor Llewellyn, Director of Clinical Services said: “At Werndale we are committed to continuous improvement of clinical facilities and services. We continually invest in the hospital so that we can offer our patients and consultants reassurance when they visit us for treatments”.

Werndale Hospital is seeing increased demand for its services across all specialities particularly orthopaedic surgery, ophthalmology, and general surgery. Nearly 4,000 patients had surgery at Werndale Hospital, Bancyfelin during 2021 and the new investment will enable ward capacity to be increased by 25 per cent.
