PLAID SUPPORTS FIGHT FOR MACHYNLLETH OUTPATIENT CLINIC
Ceredigion and Mid Wales NHS Trust's review may regard Machynlleth as ‘peripheral’ and that may be true geographically but for patients in and around Machynlleth it is very much at the centre of their preventive care and post-operative treatment.
It’s not good enough to say that Machynlleth is only 15 miles from Aberystwyth. The road is not good and that sort of thinking doesn’t take account of the distance people have to travel from deeper in Powys or Gwynedd before they get to Machynlleth in the first place. And with the Dyfi bridge closing more frequently each year this review could put many patients at risk.
