Guide for healthcare services in Pembrokeshire during the holiday season

Hywel Dda University Health Board has produced a short guide to remind people living or visiting Pembrokeshire how to access healthcare services for women and children, ahead of the holiday season.
Some changes to hospital based services, in the areas of maternity, gynaecology and neonatal care, were made in August 2014 and to paediatric hospital inpatient services in October 2014.
Most care remains unchanged and the guide aims to remind people about what is still provided within Pembrokeshire, either within the community or from Withybush Hospital, Haverfordwest. It also provides contact information about how to access these services, as well as those provided from Glangwili Hospital, Carmarthen.
Chief Executive Steve Moore said: “We hope this short guide will assist anyone who may still be unsure about what our services for women and children look like and how to access them.
“We heard concern when we went out into the community as part of our new ongoing engagement events – Let’s Talk Health – and we hope that this information will be helpful.”
The guide has been published in local media and is also being distributed to key health and community locations in the county.
It is available on the University Health Board’s website www.hywelddahb.wales.nhs.uk/yourfutureservices where there is also an Easy Read version for people with learning disabilities.
People are encouraged to download the guide and display it in community areas if they able to.
