Hywel Dda University Health Board are moving ahead with plans for a new integrated health and well-being centre in Fishguard.
A spokesperson for Hywel Da Health Board said: “The ambition is to work with partners such as the third sector, Pembrokeshire County Council and the Fishguard Health Centre in an integrated way to support health and care services and bring them closer to the community.”
They added: “This is an aspiration in the health board’s health and care strategy, ‘A Healthier Mid and West Wales’. The scheme is being taken forward with input from a range of participants to develop a business case for the needed investment.”
Elaine Lorton, County Director Hywel Dda University Health Board said: “Developing new facilities for the population of north Pembrokeshire is one of the health board’s priorities and I am really pleased that we have taken another step forward.
We have engaged with the local communities continually and heard how important local accessible services are. “Whilst we now work through the development of the strategic outline case we will need to come and engage further to ensure that what we develop is co-produced with the population and other local services.” T
The proposed investment in Fishguard is part of the Health Board’s programme of significant investment (over £1.3bn)
