Press statement by Mick Antoniw, Assembly Member for Pontypridd.
Mick Antoniw said:
“There is no institution more important to people’s lives than the NHS. Created by Labour for the people, its intrinsic strength is that it is owned by the people and run for the benefit of all. It remains to this day one of our finest achievements.
“Whilst it is right that clinicians have a pivotal role in configuring A&E services, it is the responsibility of elected politicians to speak for the people not doctors. The Royal Glamorgan is our hospital. Its Accident and Emergency service is vital to the wellbeing of the community I represent. Six years ago I campaigned to retain Accident and Emergency services in the Royal Glamorgan Hospital and I am absolutely committed to doing so again now, in the interests of my constituents.
“Overwhelmingly, this view is supported by the people I represent and live amongst and I will continue to stand with local Welsh Labour AMs and MPs in fighting to retain robust A&E services at our local hospital.”
