When you take a trip and visit Llandudno, you can never be too careful on your travels. You would have been in safe hands even before a recent announcement but after it, you can be completely assured.
The figure being touted is an impressive £1.9 million which indicates how the health sector is on the up in North Wales despite it floundering elsewhere. Although functional, the Llandudno base is relatively small – something that campaigners were eager to have expanded.
Their success has resulted in plenty of new additions to the hospital with the news emerging of better facilities and less of a dense feel to it as the plans to provide more space for patients and staff are put into place in January next year.
As a thriving facility, Llandudno has over 17,000 admissions each year and is right up there with the busiest in the country for its type. The general idea is that the improvements will negate the need to put further pressure on district general departments such as the ones in Bangor and Bodelwyddan.
Situated close to the town’s esteemed golf club, the hospital has offered some respite and care to locals over the past few years and is frequented by people suffering from minor injuries more than those who are in poorer health. With its expansion, the pressure on the main hospitals that deal with the more serious cases will be relieved.
The chairman of the Llandudno Hospital Action Group had this to say on the subject:
“This is long-awaited and much-needed and secures the future of the hospital. It has been all doom and gloom on the health front recently, so I’m delighted to have some good news.”
Ms. Groom added: “Our group has never given up on Llandudno Hospital and never will. We have to keep health services in local communities.”
With such a positive news story like this, it bears mentioning that the group tired constantly to achieve their cause and it just highlights what makes the people of Llandudno so special.
