Councillors are set to discuss the first three months of Denbighshire’s new healthcare services.
A progress report is expected today on Healthy Prestatyn Iach and Healthy Rhuddlan Iach, which launched in April after the closure of three surgeries. Around 23,000 patients are served by the two services, run directly by the Betsi Cadwaladr health board.
The board said it would update a Denbighshire scrutiny committee on Prestatyn Iach’s move into the former council offices on Ty Nant – due to begin in December – and how sixteen extra staff, including nine new doctors, were appointed for the service.
Further developments are also expected on the long delayed £22 million community hub, earmarked for Rhyl’s Royal Alexandra Hospital. The return of a minor injuries unit to the town is among the proposals being considered. There are also plans for beds for inpatients and those with mental health problems, X-ray and therapy services and outpatient clinics.
The committee hearing will be held at County Hall in Ruthin.
