Coronary Care Unit and Surgery Ward improvements underway at Withybush Hospital

Published

on

A SERIES of improvements to the hospital environment have commenced at Withybush Hospital, the Health Board has announced.

Building works to improve facilities on the Coronary Care Unit (CCU) and on Ward 3 (surgery) at the Haverfordwest hospital are planned to take place during spring 2019. This will require CCU to temporarily move into the newly refurbished Ward 9. Admissions to Ward 3 will not be affected.

Hywel Dda University Health Board has announced that the work on CCU will take approximately 6-8 weeks to complete and the necessary improvements will provide a dedicated medicines management area, additional toilet facilities and storage, meeting required Health Inspectorate Wales standards.

On Ward 3, work will include the creation of a reception area and dedicated surgical counselling and stoma care rooms.

Following completion of the Coronary Care Unit works, the Ward 9 area will then serve as a decant facility for the Ward 10 development whilst that refurbishment is underway. The Ward 10 building works will commence in April 2019 with the new Ward 10 area scheduled to open in late 2019.

Janice Cole-Williams, General Manager at Withybush Hospital said: “To enable these necessary works to take place, the Coronary Care Unit will be temporarily relocated the newly refurbished Ward 9 area.

“I wish to reassure people that disruption will be kept to a minimum and local arrangements are being made to ensure patients and visitors are informed of how and when these temporary changes may affect them.”

“We’re delighted that work has started to improve facilities for patients and staff and the hospital will benefit greatly as a result of these enhancements.

“We apologise for any inconvenience people may experience during this time and thank you for your co-operation.”

At a recent meeting of the Ward 10 Stakeholder Group, mood boards were presented to the group featuring ideas for wall coverings and furnishings. The boards will be placed on the ward for staff to share their thoughts and ideas on aspects of the project such colour schemes and equipment.

The group were delighted to hear that one of the ward’s fundraisers, Elly’s Ward 10 Flag Appeal, has reached a monumental £186,000 for the people of Pembrokeshire. Mr and Mrs Neville and their daughter Elly were thanked by the group for their continued support and involvement in the scheme.

Willy make the council fix the road?

DRIVERS in and around the Maenclochog area are still recovering today after a hardened vandal spray-painted yellow penises along a stretch of road near Morvil.
The road, just off the B4313, was targeted with graffiti because of the number of potholes scattered along it’s length.
Locals have dubbed the cock-sure artist as ‘Wanksy’ and have discovered that whoever drew the penises also wrote ‘Follow the yellow d### road’.
Some of the penises have been drawn around more sizeable potholes, but simply pointing disapprovingly at the smaller ones.
If you want to report a pothole, the chosen method is still via the Pembrokeshire County Council website.
