Consultation underway on plans for new health centre in Pembrokeshire


Members of the public asked for their views on proposals to revamp Fishguard Integrated Health and Wellbeing Centre

Members of the public are being asked to give their views on plans to develop the Fishguard Integrated Health and Wellbeing Centre in Pembrokeshire.

Hywel Dda University Health Board (UHB) is consulting on proposals for a new centre which would support the population across north Pembrokeshire from Solva and St Davids in the west, to Fishguard and Newport.

The facility would provide a number of primary and community services, depending on the needs of the public and the feedback received.

The health board’s long-term aim is to create an integrated, patient-focused, community-based model of care.

And communities will eventually see health and care shift from a focus on illness to a service that works across boundaries to prevent ill health or deterioration of health, providing help earlier and, wherever possible, closer to home.

Elaine Lorton, county director for Pembrokeshire at Hywel Dda UHB, said: “We really appreciate the feedback received so far and thank the people of Pembrokeshire for engaging with us.

“At the end of this month we will review the feedback received in order to fully understand the views of the public, partners, and stakeholders.

“The health board’s commitment to an ongoing engagement process is an important part of developing our business case, which will be submitted to Welsh Government for the funding.”

Fishguard Integrated Health and Wellbeing Centre is being developed in partnership with Pembrokeshire County Council, and work is ongoing with other partners to explore how various providers can work more closely together.
