Petition

Copy_of_Royal_Glam_Leaflet.pngRecent plans have been announced that will downgrade or close our local accident and emergency. This will result in local residents having to travel over an hour to reach their nearest A&E. Lives will be at risk unless we stop this dangerous proposal.

The Labour Welsh Government are responsible for the Welsh NHS, but the First Minister Mark Drakeford has said he is unwilling to step in and save the A&E

    People will be in a desperate plight travelling to Merthyr in an emergency. Last time I had to take somebody who had passed out to Bridgend we had to wait in the corridors a long time .

    Closing or downgrading the A&E department at the Royal Glamorgan Hospital will load an intolerable additional burden onto the A&E departments at both Cardiff University Hospital and Bridgend hospital as well as considerably extending journey times for A&E patients/ambulances within the Royal Glamorgan’s cachment area. It is a hugely short-sighted, poorly judged policy.

    We need this department in every respect. The Heath and Bridgend A and E departments are already over subscribed. Closing Royal Glam A and E will undoubtedly cost lives. We can’t let this happen.

    This is bad! They will get their wicked way but we ain’t seen nothin’ yet. Wait until the Tories Americanise everything.

    I agree more medical staff should be recruited. It shouldn’t be closed because staffing levels are unsafe.

    My family and I have used this A&E department many times and I believe that if it hadn’t been at this location my brother would have died before he received the help he needed when he had a serious RTC. Closing the department will put local residents at risk.

    With Cardiff, Merthyr and Bridgend A&E already under severe pressure, it would be a reckless act to close the A&E dept at the Royal Glamorgan Hospital, which would surely lead to avoidable deaths

    Wendy Jones’s comment says it all. Mark Drakeford should reconsider his position.

    This would be disastrous for our community Prince Charles ambulance are regularly on divert to RGH as they cant cope with the amount of patients.How will this proposal make it safer for our patients when PCH POW and UHW are at breaking point now without the extra patients that would be generated from RGH

    Due to location of alternative A&E & population it serves A&E services at RGH is a necessity.
