Minutes:

The Committee considered correspondence from Hywel Dda Community Health Council along with further comments from the petitioner. The Committee agreed to close the petition on the basis that the service changes referred to were made in 2014 and there appears to be little realistic prospect of these being reversed, particularly in light of recent proposals for further reconfiguration of health services in west Wales and the information provided by the Community Health Council.
