BCUHB, adequately staff Pen Y Maes Health Centre

This petition had 446 supporters

Pen Y Maes Health Centre has been managed by Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board (BCUHB) since 01/10/2016, since then they have had approximately 50% of the staff that they actually need and things are getting worse - no nursing cover, no ANP cover and very few doctors available. Appointments are booked up almost instantly, routine clinics have been cancelled and things should be getting better, not worse!

The summer holidays will be upon us soon and, judging by the previous half terms, there simply haven't been enough doctors and nurses to see patients who need an appointment with many days being for emergencies only - how on earth will we cope with 6+ weeks of this and why should we accept it?

We are the bread and butter of the surgery, without patients their would be no Health Centre! BCUHB need to listen to us and act immediately - the staff we have are fantastic but we need more of them, urgently!

We demand better; we demand more clinical appointments. We demand that BCUHB provide us with adequate and appropriate staffing, enough medical professionals to suit our surgery size and rapid cover for absences, none of this has been done in the past 9 months, enough is enough!

Please encourage all registered patients to support us in our quest for a better service, there will be paper copies of this petition available to download from the "Support Pen Y Maes Health Centre - Information and Patients Forum" Facebook group or you can request a printable version from should you wish to pass them around; we also aim to have copies available in Gwersyllt Community Centre and Brynteg Chemist but have not had the go ahead yet - updates will be available in the Facebook group.
