Cilfynydd GP Petition / Deiseb

Following the announcement by Cwm Taf Morgannwg University Health Board that Taff Vale Practice has made an application to close the Cilfynydd surgery, I am signing this petition to ask CTMUHB to reject the application and for Taff Vale Practice to reopen the Surgery in Cilfynydd.


“We, the residents of Cilfynydd and Norton Bridge, have to travel to Dewi Sant or Rhydyfelin to be seen by a local doctor. By signing this petition, we are asking Taff Vale Practice to secure the future of the surgery in Cilfynydd and request that the surgery reopens and returns to providing a service to the local community.”

Yn dilyn y cyhoeddiad gan Fwrdd Iechyd Prifysgol Cwm Taf Morgannwg bod Taff Vale Practice wedi gwneud cais i gau meddygfa Cilfynydd, rwy’n llofnodi’r ddeiseb hon i ofyn i Fwrdd Iechyd Prifysgol Cwm Taf Morgannwg i wrthod y cais ac i Taff Vale Practice ailagor y Feddygfa yng Nghilfynydd.

“Mae’n rhaid i ni, drigolion Cilfynydd a Norton Bridge, deithio i Dewi Sant neu Rhydfelen i gael ein gweld gan feddyg lleol. Wrth arwyddo’r ddeiseb hon, rydym yn gofyn i Taff Vale Practice sicrhau dyfodol y feddygfa yng Nghilfynydd a gofyn i’r feddygfa ailagor a dychwelyd i ddarparu gwasanaeth i’r gymuned leol.”

    I’m signing for all the patients who are elderly disabled and unable to drive to other surgeries, by closing down this surgery and ynysybwl, there are going to be fewer appointments available and the ones who cannot get to the nearest go surgery will have to suffer this causing a detrimental effect on their health and mental wellbeing!

    The surgery is vital to villagers.

    The town centre is 2 miles away, and this would be asking ill people to travel on buses to get to appointments.

    It is already difficult to see a doctor, this would make it more difficult for some.

    What the hell are you thinking. You can’t close the surgery. Many people don’t drive. We need this in our village. They are already taking our school away and now doctors

    It has previously taken me an hour to drive to an appointment at Dewi Sant. For those without transport an Impossible and unnecessary task when the surgery was placed and remains in our community for a valid reason……..because its needed!!

    You’re supposed to be looking after the people of our community that’s a laugh, there are lots of people finding it hard to get to other surgeries. Fed up with excuses if it was Rhydyfelin you’d find the funds for that so what’s the difference between them and us Cilfynydd and Ynysabwl are important to us

    I’m an ynysybwl girl who’s moving back into the village within the month. I have loads of health issues and losing the gp surgery in ynysybwl would make my life so much harder as it will for many other residents. Please keep it open

    This is a life line for villagers in Cilfynydd, rhydfelin does not have suitable Parking for those that drive & Dewi Sant is equally as bad.
