Health Minister thanks Healthy Prestatyn Iach team
Health Minister Mark Drakeford called into the Central Prestatyn building ahead of the launch today of Healthy Prestatyn Iach.
The Minister was very supportive of the philosophy and approach of the service, saying:
“The Healthy Prestatyn Iach team have worked hard to create a new service for people locally that will offer care from a range of healthcare professionals. They have created a new service, designed with the needs of the local population in mind, in a short space of time following the sudden termination of the Pendyffryn Surgery contract last autumn.
“The GP surgeries this service replaces were facing recruitment difficulties. However, I understand that nine GPs have already been recruited with more to be appointed.
“Healthy Prestatyn Iach represents a more prudent way of providing local healthcare, using the skills of our dedicated primary care workforce and supporting them to innovate and develop the services they provide.
“I want to thank all the staff who have worked hard to set up the Healthy Prestatyn Iach service. They can be proud of the improved service they will be offering to people locally.”
