We call on the National Assembly for Wales to urge the Welsh Government to save our health services at the Royal Glamorgan Hospital
A decision is being made by that, if implemented, this will result in the loss of some paediatric, obstetric, neonatal, and accident and emergency care. Put simply, if you require intensive care, have a very sick child or are likely to have a pregnancy that is not straight forward you will have to travel to Cardiff, Merthyr, or Bridgend. For RCT residents reliant on public transportation, this could result in travel times in excess of 2 hours to attend vital appointments. We the undersigned residents of Rhondda Cynon Taff strongly support option 5.2 under the proposals outlined in the consultation document for the reconfiguration of health services, "Matching the Best in the World - Challenges facing Hospital Services in South Wales. "We further support the retention and development of the Royal Glamorgan Hospital facilities and services to ensure the people of Rhondda Cynon Taff can receive and access the services they deserve within these Count Boundaries.
