Delyn MP David Hanson and Sandy Mewies AM have welcomed the Local Health Board’s decision to agree a contract to provide replacement medical services in Dyserth for the people of Trelawnyd and surrounding villages.
The new surgery will be open to patients from mid- February 2009. People will be able to register with the new practice, once the new IT system has been installed and new staff are in place.
Delyn AM Sandy Mewies and MP David Hanson have been campaigning hard for this outcome over the last 18 months after receiving a petition from concerned residents in Trelawnyd.
Sandy Mewies said:
“I was approached by a number of constituents back in 2007 who were concerned that, following the retirement of their GP, the service at the surgery in Dyserth was erratic with many patients being asked to change GP’s.
“Having kept the pressure up on the Local Health Board I am delighted that the new GP surgery will be up and running later this month.”
David Hanson said:
“I am pleased that this issue of considerable concern for people living in and around Trelawnyd has been resolved. I know many constituents of mine will be contented with this outcome.
“Good access to GP services is fundamentally important and I will continue to do everything I can to ensure the people of Flintshire get the standard of healthcare they deserve.”
All patients will automatically remain registered with their existing practice, unless they formally register with the new surgery. Consequently, if you decide not to change your doctor, you do not need to take any action.
