Major Trauma Centre 09:18 - Mar 30 with 7434 viewsjohnlangy

A debate has started to make the decision as to whether the Major Trauma Centre for South Wales should be based at Morriston or the Heath.

This will be well worth keeping an eye on because it's a decision that could affect the health of any of us or members of our families. The question about spread of investment by the WAG doesn't just mean new roads and jobs.

Not sure that is why he didn't say anything. He may have felt it was inappropriate to comment to someone outside of his constituency as it would be disrespectful to his actual AM. Protocol and all that!


So then it is pointless asking politicians for any viewpoint if you don't live in their constituency?
Imho they have to have a view if it affects their consitiuency regardless of where the questioner lives.
I would take your point if Langy was asking Mike about the closure of a cafe in Rhossili but the MTC decision affects 18 AMs in an area that stretches right down to the Pembrokeshire coast.
I have no doubt we are going to get this standard reply though......

Can't argue with that. I was just trying to give a plausible reason why he may have referred it on.

He could have given his views briefly I would have thought. Or copy and pasted his standard reply he must have done in readiness for his own constituents.

Emailed my local (Labour) counsillor. This was my response -

I was bitterly disappointed at the Major Trauma Centre decision which ignored the huge response in favour of Morriston during the consultation. You might be aware that our MP Geraint Davies took a leading role in the "Save Lives South Wales" campaign which I was also a part of, we had some coverage in the Evening Post getting people at Tesco Fforestfach to sign letters to submit to the consultation in support of Morriston.

Our Council Leader Rob Stewart is working very hard lobbying Welsh government about this. His most recent statement is as follows,

"We believe the decision to base the major trauma centre in Cardiff is wrong. It deprives people in the south west and West of Wales of accessing the major trauma centre within the ‘golden hour’.

Basing the MTC in Cardiff will mean that those living in the south east will have access to both Cardiff and Bristol trauma centres within an hour. That is simply unfair.

While we welcome the announcement of a trauma unit in Morriston we are yet to know what this will actually mean and what clinical trauma services will be available.

We will continue to press for Morriston to become a MTC as soon as possible."

Thanks again for getting in touch, I will update you with any further information on this as I find out more.

Where on earth are the Labour AMs? Council and MPs getting involved. No AMs. This is what we're voting for. Are we the most idiotic country on earth? We literally vote in people who prioritise the wealth of Cardiff over our own health. We've always known their wealth has been the priority, but this is quite literally life or death stuff. And we vote for it.

Thanks for that CJ.
Thanks for updating Pikey as well It really is that easy getting hold on ANY AM via email. It is just:
first name.second name@assembly.wales
for any of them. You will have to jump through a few hoops for the 'Ministers'.
There is also a website where you can get the names of all the little tinkers.
There are loads of them and, as a recent twitter user, I find it a damn cheek they want to increase the Assembly by another 40 AMs as they do not have enough time for 'scrutiny'. Seems to me they spend most of their time at Charity bunfights.
Your Local Councillor's reply is interesting. Why did we not get to hear of any of the initiatives from our 'national' media? No SWEP petion this time now it is under the cardiff umbrella.You had to dig to find the supporting video. There were two versions and Julie James made an appearance on one but not heard a peep from her since. I am awaiting a reply from her in relation to my email.
You have to ask where are the Council's complainants now? Why aren't they kicking up about the decision and lack of press coverage?
Sorry I have been a bit quiet the last day if so. Grandfather duties have held me up.
I have had a reply from Mike Hedges which i will post on here. I am not happy with his response as he thinks Twitting before the Health Board's decision is job done. I will be getting back to him.
I will be contacting Messers Gethin, Skates, Jones, Williams, RTdavies, and Woods and will report back on their response as well.
With rank apathy and no interest in the Cardiff based and biased media we are p!ssing in the wind but the responses however can be used for future reference and show the contempt the rest of Wales has been shown by our local politicians.

Emails sent. I wonder if I get a reply? Doubt it with the terrible grammar but if one of the Feckers read it I will be happy.



Could you please tell me why there has been a total lack of response from you and the other AMs since the disgraceful decision to locate the Major Trauma Centre in Cardiff when there already is one in Bristol? Everyone can see this is plainly wrong.

This decision will result in deaths in West Wales something you and the other local AMs are obviously happy to put up with rather than rocking the boat in Cardiff and upsetting your paymasters just like you have stood to one side and observed the total decline in the rest of Wales so that £billions can be spent on Cardiff.

I just hope no one from your family in the future suffers as a result of them being out the "golden hour" if they do you may well wonder if it was worth putting your career ahead of your morals.

We all know due to the sheep mentality of Labour voters in South West Wales you will get elected again and that being the case you do not really care a flying fox about them with you being a career politician,but for once in your life it's time to stand up for the people who voted you in.

I look forward to your response.

Regards Paul.

I’ve tried my bit, I have personally told both First Minister Carwyn Jones and a minister member of the WAG that’s all they care about is Cardiff!.....Cardiff!.....Cardiff! I told them both when they were standing one foot in front of me. I also told ex-M.P Martin Caton the same.

The reality is? It is like water off a ducks back, they do not care i.e. they are Cardiff centric career politicians whereupon only Cardiff and their party comes first. They will indeed (they did!) fob me, you and everyone off with standard response procedure. You know the stuff? Oh look what about the money they spent somewhere else, on something else..... That?..... Goes nowhere near to address the stark reality and concern of the/another issue expressed.

Well done again.

Here is my email from Mike Hedges and my response:

*********************************************************
Dear
If you have followed me on twitter you would be aware of my anger at the decision made
I will oppose it at each every opportunity I get
Thoracic surgery has been centralised at Morriston but that does not make up for the failure to site the MTC in Morriston
On Burns and Plastics as it is a Wales and West Country service and the site Morriston beat to get it was in Bristol then it is not in the gift of the Welsh Government to unilaterally move it
Regards

*************************************************************

Hello Mr Hedges,
Thank you for your response.
I am encouraged to see that you will continue to fight this shocking decision at every opportunity and look forward to seeing this reported in the media.
I hope the other AMs , whose constituent’s lives are being put at risk by this decision, will unite against this shocking outcome.
I appreciate that Swansea (with the exception of Gower) will have Golden Hour cover by a Cardiff based. MTC.
Vital well paid jobs will again be lost to the area however and more and more people feel we are building a Cardiff City State. Even at the expense of the lives of the population.

...and now Julie James...

This is a strange one. I have been asked by her Community Liaison and Casework Officer to complete a further form with my personal details. This so Julie can fight my case for me. If she decides I have one I assume!

Here is the email and my response

*************************************************************

Dear

Your email to Julie James AM has been passed to me as the Caseworker to progress. Please see attached form which requires signature and return. Once the signed form has been received, I shall contact you again with a response.

If you require the form sent through the post, please advise me of your address and I shall post it to you along with a stamped addressed envelope for your use.

Regards

****************************************************************

Hello

Could you please advise me why I have to jump through an extra hoop in relation to this?

I am not asking Julie to fight a case for me although I appreciate that this subject affects all her constituents.

After witnessing her support for a Moriston based MTC in a video I am just concerned to know what her views are on the outcome. Also whether she will be campaigning further to stop this shocking decision taking place.
Regards,

Cheers,
it really gets to me ;-)
As stated previously I don't want to spend the rest of my days on a soapbox preaching to the disinterested.
I am considering putting a couple of hours a week to one side just to keep this lot on their toes however.
I probably will have to have another user name and an email address to reflect that as I want to retain relative anonymity. The current Mrs Partz would be furious otherwise.
If that is the case I will have to be 'demobbed' and have less of a Carry On user name.
It would never do to be complaining about something like paedophilia with a name like this ;-)

The thing regarding "preaching to the disinterested"? IMO it's a case of the vast majority of Swansea/SE Wales being totally and utterly oblivious to what is actually going on and the ramifications of what is going on . Also there are disinterested types because they think nasty accidents only happen to somebody else.

I pray for a future when voters down these parts acquire a streetwise savvy tactical-voting mindset like you typically see in those English marginals that the U.K press tends to descend upon in droves during a by-election and election. You sh#t on those constituencies and they punish at the ballot box! Not down here, sadly!

Reply from Mike Hedges saying, as I live in the Gower constituency I should forward this mail to Rebecca Evans.

Sent it to her a few minutes ago. MH made no comment about the MTC in his reply.


Reply received from Rebecca yesterday.
********************************************************
Thank you very much for the email and for alerting me to the broken link.

My website can be found here: https://www.rebeccaevansam.com/

You can find out about surgeries by getting in touch with my office. The contact details are here: https://www.rebeccaevansam.com/get-in-touch--cysylltwch-acirc-fi.html

I also advertise the surgeries in the South Wales Evening Post, on my facebook page (Rebecca Evans AM), and on twitter @RebeccaEvansAM.

My next surgery is on Friday, between 1pm and 2pm at my constituency office in Gorseinon (9 Pontarddulais Rd). If you cannot make that surgery or you need to speak before Friday, I can always give you a call.

I want to reassure you that I have received your email regarding the Major Trauma Unit decision, and will of course provide you with a response. However, I am away from the office until the middle of next week and will need to access information in regarding representations made about the importance of Swansea’s hospitals order to furnish you with a full reply.

With kind regards,

Rebecca
******************************************************

A response at least. I'll let you all know what she has to say when I get the mail.
