Public Consultation on the Provision of Adult Thoracic Surgery in South Wales

Public Consultation on the Provision of Adult Thoracic Surgery in South Wales

Local Health Boards are working together to look at the future provision of adult thoracic surgery services in South Wales. This work is being led by the Welsh Health Specialised Services Committee (WHSSC) which is responsible for the joint planning of specialised NHS services on behalf of all Local Health Boards in Wales.

An eight week consultation process launched on 3rd July 2018 and we would like your views on the proposal to locate a single adult thoracic surgery centre at Morriston Hospital in Swansea serving patients from south east Wales, west Wales and south Powys.

The documents for the consultation are attached and there will also be a range of public meetings taking place across Gwent to support the process.  Those wishing to respond can do so by using the details provided by WHSSC via the following link (WHSSC).

Representatives from the Health Board will be giving a presentation on the proposals at a number of forthcoming events:
