Town won’t back Mid Wales hospital

Welshpool Town Council has abandoned plans to launch a campaign for a hospital dedicated to Mid Wales. 

The council’s Care Committee had revealed the idea ahead of Wednesday’s full council meeting, when councillors discussed the possibility of sending letters out to all town and community councillors in the area to gauge the public’s views on the idea.

Currently people needing emergency care go to the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital, however some patients in south Montgomeryshire go to Bronglais Hospital in Aberystwyth.

Councillors and politicians have previously called for a hospital or emergency services to be delivered in Mid Wales.

Welshpool Mayor, Councillor Stephen Kaye, said: “There is a great need for emergency care here in Mid Wales, to serve the people of Mid Wales.

“In the past it has been said there would be problems about the population number and money, but I personally feel there is a need for it in Mid Wales.”

On Monday, Newtown Town Council discussed Welshpool’s campaign, however they declined to support the idea.

And on Wednesday night there was no support for the idea from Welshpool Town Councillors either.
