Deiseb Meddygfa Ynysybwl Surgery Petition

Cadwch ein meddygfa ar agor

Keep our surgery open


We, who have signed this petition, call on Cwm Taf Morgannwg University Health Board to keep the Ynysybwl branch of Taff Vale Practice open.  

Closure would have a huge impact on patients, who are already struggling to secure appointments. 

Many patients do not own cars and can currently walk to the Ynysybwl branch. The lack of adequate bus services already results in patients missing vital GP and hospital appointments elsewhere.  

For older patients, or those who may be less mobile, going by bus to Glyncoch, Rhydyfelin or Dewi Sant involves catching two buses. This will only lead to more missed appointments or people choosing not to seek treatment.  

Please listen to our views, and keep the Ynysybwl branch open. 

Rydym ni, sydd wedi llofnodi’r ddeiseb hon, yn galw ar Fwrdd Iechyd Prifysgol Cwm Taf Morgannwg i gadw cangen Ynysybwl o Feddygfa Cwm Taf ar agor.

Byddai cau yn cael effaith enfawr ar gleifion, sydd eisoes yn ei chael yn anodd sicrhau apwyntiadau.

Nid yw llawer o gleifion yn berchen ar geir a gallant gerdded i gangen Ynysybwl ar hyn o bryd. Mae diffyg gwasanaethau bws digonol eisoes yn golygu bod cleifion yn colli apwyntiadau hanfodol gyda meddygon teulu ac ysbytai mewn mannau eraill.

Ar gyfer cleifion hŷn, neu’r rhai sydd efallai’n llai symudol, mae mynd ar fws i Glyncoch, Rhydyfelin neu Dewi Sant yn golygu dal dau fws. Bydd hyn ond yn arwain at golli mwy o apwyntiadau neu bobl yn dewis peidio cael triniaeth.

Plîs gwrandewch arnom, a chadwch gangen Ynysybwl ar agor

    The local gp is a vital hub of care for older and disabled people who struggle to travel. It is also the birthplace of taff vale. My family told me it was started by doc Strawbridge in Ynysybwl. I know many people including my own family members who cannot travel on buses due to disabilities and losing out surgery is heartbreaking for them. It is also unfair to expect people to wait weeks for appointments due to lack of spaces keeping these small practices open creates more appointments. It’s time for the government to take the money out of their pockets and put it to proper use in care of our communities.

    By closing this surgery this is going to have a detrimental effect on the elderly and disabled who are unable to get to other surgeries, there will

    Be less appointments and have a detrimental effect on people’s lives and wellbeing!

    I know Ynysybwl well, having visited it many times with my Welsh friend who passed this petition to me. She actually comes from Ynysybwl. The closure of the local health care centre is a terrible idea. In my area of London local GP services have been sold off to a US medical company.
