PEOPLE are being urged to have their say on proposals that could fundamentally change the way healthcare is delivered across Pembrokeshire.

Hywel Dda Health Board's 'Big NHS change' consultation runs for another nine weeks, and puts forward three options for the future of local services - all of which would see Withybush lose its A&E department.

All options would also involve building a new hospital between Narberth and St Clears.

A petition opposing the changes has so far received almost 22,000 signatures.

Drop-in events will take place in Saundersfoot's Regency Hall on Friday, May 11, and at Letterston Memorial Hall on Tuesday, May 15, from 2pm to 7pm, where the public can examine the plans in detail, and give their feedback.

The health board has stressed no decisions have been made, and the outcome of the consultation relies on hearing from as many local people as possible.

Hywel Dda chief executive Steve Moore said: “Our proposals for change could affect everyone in our area, from bumps and babies to older people and everyone in between, so we are asking you all to tell us what you think.

"Whether you are a patient, a carer, a family member, or one of the thousands of people who work for the health board - we want to hear from you."

UPDATE: The health board has today announced further sessions will also take place in St Davids on June 14, Haverfordwest on June 26, and Milford Haven on July 5.
