Paul Davies Calls for services to be re-established at Withybush

Following the formation of the new Welsh Government, local Assembly Member Paul Davies has written to Vaughan Gething, the new Cabinet Secretary for Health, Well-being and Sport to urge him to re-establish services at Withybush hospital.

Local AM Paul Davies said, “The campaign to see our services returned to Withybush hospital is still the biggest issue facing my constituents and it’s important that the Welsh Government recognise that. Throughout the recent Assembly election period, I stood on a platform to see services returned to Withybush hospital where they belong and I will continue to do everything in my power to see that happen.”

Paul Davies supports campaign for more IBD nurses

A new survey¹ conducted by the patient charity, Crohn’s and Colitis UK, has found that 100,000² patients in the UK with Inflammatory Bowel Disease(IBD) don’t have access to adequate care. IBD Nurses are instrumental in improving the quality of life for patients with IBD³ as well as helping to cut significant costs to the NHS, yet many health services are not offering the recommended nursing level.

Local AM Paul Davies said, “People living with IBD in Pembrokeshire deserve access to the indispensable services and support provided by specialist IBD nurses, particularly as they are proven to improve quality of life. I want to see more specialist IBD nurses locally to ensure that my constituents have access to the crucial care they both need and deserve.”

To receive an additional nineteen cruise ships is a fantastic boost to the local area and I sincerely hope that it will bring some real benefits to local businesses.”

Pembrokeshire AM’s Vote of Thanks

Dear Editor,

I’m writing to thank everyone who took time out of their day on May 5th to re-elect me as their Assembly Member for Preseli Pembrokeshire. It’s a great honour to represent my home at an Assembly level and I’m touched that so many people have given me the opportunity to continue my work.

I’d also like to thank the other candidates for Preseli Pembrokeshire, who spent countless hours engaging with people in all parts of the constituency as well as attending public meetings to discuss some of Pembrokeshire’s more pressing matters, whether it be services at Withybush hospital, school reorganisation proposals, the A40 or any other issues. It takes courage to stand for election and I’ve thoroughly enjoyed sharing a platform with the other candidates throughout this campaign.
