P-04-450 Barry & Vale needs a fully functioning hospital.

We call on the National Assembly for Wales to urge the Welsh Government to ensure that Barry Hospital has a fully functioning minor injuries unit that is open to patients 8 hours a day, 5 days a week.

 

Supporting information:  We call on the Welsh Government to stop sitting on their hands and intervene in the way the Cardiff & Vale NHS trust are running Barry Hospital.  For too long the trust have sold the Barry & Vale people down the river!  With excuses such as staff sickness and operational pressure.  The Barry & Vale people need a fully functioning Minor Injuries unit.  This is unacceptable for a hospital with a catchment area the size of Barry and the Vale of Glamorgan.  The reasoning behind these problems are that ’the Minor Injuries Unit at Barry Hospital is a very busy service which is currently under significant operational pressure because of staff sickness and maternity leave.  As a result, and for safety reasons, the Unit will run on a reduced hours basis until further notice.  It will open at 8.30am, and will close to new patients at 2pm.  This means that, after 2pm, we will only treat those patients who are already waiting’.
