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

    Although not registered at this practice, it is a backward step for our village, & a huge inconvenience for non drivers & elderly residents.

    It’s so safe here when we take the children to see the gp, and ease of parking compared to driving to Dewi sant, where you can drive around the car park looking for a space!!!

    Plus the environmental damage with all the extra journeys.

    Even though it’s not a surgery I use it is vital that it remains open for residents of Ynysybwl & Coed y Cwm, many of whom are elderly or have health conditions that make travelling to other areas such as Pontypridd or Rhydfelin very difficult particularly with our current bus service. We are losing so much as a village so every resident should get behind this campaign to keep Taff Vale Practice Ynysybwl branch open.

    My mother is close to 90 years of age and is partially immobilised. She needs the surgery open.

    My mother is 87 and should be able to visit a surgery in the village and not have to take two buses to get to to any of the other 3, yet again Ynysybwl is deemed the least important. Shocking.
