Goodwick Surgery Concerns Raised by Local AM

Support to help deliver a more stable solution for Goodwick surgery was raised in the Assembly Chamber by local AM Paul Davies. Mr Davies raised the issue with the First Minister following concerns from local residents about the lack of access that patients have to services.

Mr Davies said: “It’s important that GP practices are delivering high-quality medical services in our local communities and that everything possible is done to ensure that in the case of Goodwick, a permanent and stable solution is found. I’ve received correspondence from constituents who are rightly concerned about the future of the practice and I hope that the Welsh Government will do all that it can to support Hywel Dda University Health Board in recruiting more staff, so that we can see an improvement in service delivery.”


Local AM Calls for A40 Dualling Commitment

Local Assembly Member Paul Davies has called for a commitment from the Welsh Government to dual the A40 in Pembrokeshire, following the publication of the Welsh Government’s Programme for Government. Mr Davies called on the First Minister to not to rule out dualling the A40 in Pembrokeshire, following confirmation in the Programme for Government that improvements to the A40 would be made in this Assembly.

Mr Davies said: “I’m pleased to see that the Welsh Government will be delivering improvements to the A40 in Pembrokeshire over the next few years, but the time has come for the A40 to be dualled. Dualling the A40 will send a clear message that Pembrokeshire is open for business as well as tackling traffic congestion, which can be particularly heavy during the summer months. Whilst I welcome any steps to improve Pembrokeshire’s transport network, it’s clear that the Welsh Government need to get on with the job of dualling the road and delivering real infrastructure improvements in west Wales.”

Broadband Update Called For By Local AM

Local Assembly Member Paul Davies has once again called for a statement on the Welsh Government’s delivery of broadband across Wales, following complaints from constituents across Pembrokeshire who continue to receive a poor service.

Mr Davies said: “The Welsh Government are keen to emphasise the success of rolling out superfast broadband across Wales and yet in areas of Pembrokeshire, communities are still facing poor broadband speeds and substandard services. Now last year the Minister promised that rural communities wouldn’t be left behind – but that’s not the experience of some of my constituents.”

The work of Coast Lines very much benefits the whole of Pembrokeshire and it’s great to see its success go from strength to strength. It was lovely to see the exhibits first hand and I’m grateful to Lizzy for showing me around and explaining to me more about the whole Coast Lines project.
