Local AM Supports Holocaust Memorial Day

Local Assembly Member Paul Davies attended a Holocaust Memorial Service in Haverfordwest, to remember the Holocaust and subsequent genocides across the world and the impact that they have had on the international community over the years.

Mr Davies said: “I was honoured to once again attend the Holocaust Memorial Service at Haverfordwest. It’s crucial that everyone fully recognises the impact that the Holocaust and other genocides have had on the international community. It’s so important that we continue to remember and mark these events. “Don’t stand by” is the theme for Holocaust Memorial Day 2016, and I’d encourage everyone to support this movement by visiting the Holocaust Memorial Trust website at http://hmd.org.uk/ to find out how you can get involved.”

Paul Davies Supports #SmearForSmear campaign

Local Assembly Member Paul Davies is supporting the Jo’s Cervical Cancer Trust #SmearForSmear campaign, which marks the beginning of Cervical Cancer Prevention Week. The aim of the campaign is to raise awareness of cervical cancer and the importance of prevention with a focus on cervical screening (smear test).

Mr Davies said: “I’m proud to be supporting the #SmearForSmear campaign, to raise awareness of cervical cancer and spread the message that it can be prevented. Sadly, more than one in five women do not attend a cervical screening each year in the UK, and so more needs to be done to encourage women about the importance of cervical screenings. Eight women are diagnosed with cervical cancer every day and three women a day die from the disease – that’s why we must continue to encourage women to have a cervical screening and reduce their risk of cervical cancer. For more information about the campaign, please visit http://www.jostrust.org.uk/smearforsmear/

Services to be re-established with a Welsh Conservative Government

Paul is pictured outside Withybush Hospital.Local Assembly Member Paul Davies has reiterated that a Conservative Welsh Government would re-establish full time paediatric services and special care baby services at Withybush hospital. Four months from a Welsh general election, Mr Davies made it clear that should a Welsh Conservative government be formed in May, the drive to centralise services from Withybush hospital would not only be stopped, but key health services would also be returned to the site.

Mr Davies said: “Wales has seen the largest reductions in health spending of any of the UK nations after the Welsh government failed to protect NHS spending and that’s been felt right across the country. Here in Pembrokeshire, communities across the county have been fighting to retain services at Withybush hospital and they deserve a Welsh government that listens to them and delivers that.”

Mr Davies said: “I was delighted to present the Wolfscastle over 60s club with a cheque for almost £5,000, which I understand, will be used to organise a series of educational visits to local and national places of interest during the coming year. The Wolfscastle over 60s club now has more than 30 members and with this funding, it can continue to go from strength to strength. I’ve been fortunate to have visited the club on numerous occasions and I’d therefore urge any older people living in Wolfscastle to join the group as it’s a fantastic way to socialise and meet new people.”
