Completed petition Save Royal Glamorgan A&E
There are serious concerns that a closure or partial closure of A&E services at Royal Glamorgan Hospital could be taking place very soon. This will have a significant impact on access to A&E for patients in Rhondda Cynon Taff and will also put additional pressures on A&E departments in Merthyr Tydfil, Cardiff and Bridgend. The Welsh Government should intervene and do all it can to prevent any reduction of service in the provision of A&E Services at Royal Glamorgan Hospital and do all it can to facilitate the recruitment and appointment of badly needed A&E Consultants to the health board.

The Petitions Committee decided not to refer this petition for a debate
The Committee considered a range of evidence and decided not to schedule the petition for debate in the Senedd in light of the decision by Cwm Taf Morgannwg University Health Board to retain a full time Emergency Department at the Royal Glamorgan Hospital.
