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

    It’s hard work going to any other surgery. Your stretched as it is but when you have a chronic illness you need a local surgery.

    Unless you have access to a car and even then there are difficulties parking, asking sick patients to attend an appointment at either Rhydyfelin or Dewi Sant is just wrong when we have a perfectly good surgery in the village, when the surgery closed down during covid it was supposed to be a temporary measure, this step may have been practical at the time but we’ve been let down with promises of our surgery being reopened at some point and now total closure is on the cards, this shouldnt be happening.

    Don’t take away this service from our village. How can the majority of residents get to the other surgeries especially if they require immediate appointments. The service was cut drastically during Covid. There is not much of a service left for people, but at least keep this one going for the elderly and people who struggle for whatever reason to get out and about.

    Is this the start of cutting more surgeries, so we all end up at the pharmacy with our problems or self diagnosing??

    Ynysybwl needs this surgery to remain in the village. A large number of villagers will be affected and have difficulty getting to another surgery outside the area
