Ensuring Safe and Sustainable GP Primary Care Services in North West Powys 

Dyfi Valley Health, the provider of GP Primary Care Services for around 7,000 people in north west Powys and surrounding areas, is facing a number of challenges in maintaining local services in their current form. They have submitted a formal application to Powys Teaching Health Board to merge their services onto their Forge Road premises in Machynlleth and close their premises at Cemmaes Road by June 2019. 

In order to help us consider the application from the practice and make decisions on the future of local services, we are consulting with patients of Dyfi Valley Health and the wider communities around Cemmaes Road and Machynlleth. 

Consultation is taking place from 11 February to 28 March 2019.

We know that local patients and communities value their local services. So, we have published a consultation document which sets out the history, current situation and options for the future. This is being sent to patients registered with Dyfi Valley Health to seek their views, and is also being share with local organisations and stakeholders.

 Your views are essential to this process.

 We need to understand how any change would affect you and your community and what steps we could take to reduce any negative impact of any change. We encourage you to express your views by completing and returning the consultation questionnaire.

 You don’t need to give your name and any feedback or comments will be entirely confidential.

 We plan to hold a number of public meetings and drop in sessions where you can talk to the health board and other members of the community about this consultation. Find out more soon on our website at www.powysthb.wales.nhs.uk/dyfi-valley-health

 The questionnaire will be analysed by the health board’s engagement team. Responses may also be shared with the Powys Community Health Council who are the independent statutory body to represent the interests of patients and the public in the NHS.

 Your views will contribute to a report which will inform a recommendation on the way forward, which will be debated in public at a meeting of the Powys Teaching Health Board later this spring.

 The health board is not prejudging the outcome of this consultation, however in the event that the application from Dyfi Valley Health is accepted, then their premises at Cemmaes Road would close by June 2019.

 Thank you for taking the time to consider this proposal and share your views.
