Cardiff and Vale University Health Board’s proposals for Non-Complex Surgery for Adults in Cardiff and the Vale of Glamorgan
Cardiff and Vale University Health Board would like to hear your views on a proposal to increase the range of non-complex surgery for residents of Cardiff and the Vale of Glamorgan that is provided at University Hospital Llandough (UHL). Routine surgical services are already well developed at UHL and we would like to build on that with an initial focus on moving some day case and short stay Ear, Nose and Throat (ENT) surgery from UHW to UHL.
Emergency pressures on the University Hospital of Wales site (UHW) in Cardiff often lead to short notice cancellations of planned surgery. We believe that providing more of this type of surgery at UHL will lead to a much better patient experience with reduced on-the-day cancellations and shorter waiting times, as we will be able to organise services more efficiently.
Please go to the UHB website to read the Engagement Document and tell us what you think.
Responses to the questions contained in the Engagement Document can be returned via the following options:
- By email to Noncomplex.Surgeryengagement@wales.nhs.uk
- By post to:
Mike Bond – Director of Operations Surgery Clinical Board
University Hospital of Wales
Cardiff CF14 4XW
- By hand to a member of staff in the Surgery service
You can also contact the local Community Health Council (CHC) for more information:
The closing date for responses is 20 September 2019.
