"Isolation risk in shutting Coelbren GP surgery"


The removal of GP services from Coelbren Health Centre, along with uncertainty over a key bus route, has led to fears that the community will be cut off. The BBC covered developments here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-wales-mid-wales-38676769.

Kirsty's commented on developments saying:

"It is clearly an extremely difficult time for the community. To lose GP services and a key bus route in such a short space of time will be hugely challenging for many people in Coelbren, and is a prime example of the challenges isolated communities face".

"If people can't see their GP in Coelbren it's absolutely essential transport links are maintained to stop them being cut off and to allow them to see someone nearby".
