A meeting of the newly reformed South East Pembrokeshire Community Health Network (SEPCHN) will be held at New Hedges Village Hall on Tuesday, June 7, between 2.30 and 4.30 pm, where Maria Battle and Elaine Lorton the Hywel Dda Director for Pembrokeshire will be in attendance to talk about the Programme Business Case and Pembrokeshire health services in particular.

The main aim of the meeting is to investigate the local health issues identified by members, with important emerging topics such as - development plans for Tenby Cottage Hospital and information on the new major hospital being planned near Narberth.

Mansell Thomas who was chair of SEPCHN for a number of years, before retiring, said that he was delighted to see the group reform.

“I am extremely pleased to witness the re-birth of the SEPCHN after many years of its committed activity,” he remarked.

“It is now over two years since the Network last met, mainly because of the Covid pandemic. The Network has an important role to play in our community in helping to promote and protect our local NHS.

“There have been important successes in the working of the group and I would sincerely wish to thank the loyal members who have supported our efforts over very many years; questioning officers, attending demonstrations, attending Board meetings, and contributing constructive ideas, especially with regard to our own local hospital and long may it continue.

“There are local health matters constantly emerging and the agenda for the future already appears to be formulated.

“The new officers both Tenby Town councillors, have strong professional backgrounds and are well suited to the role,” continued Mr. Thomas.

Clr. Laurence Blackhall will serve as chair and Clr. Duncan Whitehurst as secretary. Both can be contacted at Tenby Town Council or via email at: [email protected]

“I am confident that we have now, managed to engage two officers who appear to offer the commitment required and I thank them and wish them every success in the years ahead.

“I know that our members are as committed as ever and they can rely on their support,” he added.
