Update on GP Out-of- Hours service this weekend / Diweddariad ar gwasanaeth Tu-Allan-i-Oriau y penwythnos yma

WE are again experiencing a shortage of GPs to cover the Out of Hours service in Carmarthenshire and Pembrokeshire this weekend.

Efforts are continuing until the last possible moment to fill the shifts affected, however there are still gaps in the rota affecting service provision between Saturday and Sunday.

At present we are unable to keep the following Out of Hours bases open:

Withybush General Hospital – closed 12am to 8am on Sunday
Prince Philip Hospital – closed from 2pm on Saturday to 8am on Sunday
Glangwili General Hospital – closed from 10.30pm on Saturday to 8am on Sunday
Patients who need GP assistance should call 111 as normal who will signpost you to the right service, for example a GP, nurse, pharmacist or Minor Injury Unit; they can also provide health information on a wide range of conditions for self care if appropriate.

Please also note that a number of community pharmacies across the health board are now offering services which support the Out of Hours service, including the Common Ailments Scheme, Emergency Medicines Schemes and Emergency Hormonal Contraceptive scheme – for a full list of these click here http://www.wales.nhs.uk/sitesplus/862/page/94141


Rydym eto yn profi prinder Meddygon Teulu i gynnal y gwasanaeth Tu Allan i Oriau yn Sir Gaerfyrddin a Sir Benfro y penwythnos yma.

Bydd ymdrechion yn parhau tan y foment olaf un i lenwi’r sifftiau sydd wedi’u heffeithio, ond ar hyn o bryd mae dal bylchau yn y rota gall amharu ar ddarpariaeth gwasanaeth rhwng dydd Sadwrn a dydd Sul.

Ar hyn o bryd nid oes modd i ni gadw’r safleoedd canlynol ar agor:

Ysbyty Llwynhelyg – ar gau o 12am tan 8am dydd Sul
Ysbyty Tywysog Philip – ar gau o 2pm dydd Sadwrn tan 8am dydd Sul
Ysbyty Glangwili – ar gau o 10.30pm dydd Sadwrn tan 8am dydd Sul
Noder bod nifer o fferyllfeydd cymundol ar draws y bwrdd iechyd bellach yn cynnig gwasanaethau sy’n cefnogi’r gwasanaeth y tu allan i oriau, gan gynnwys Cynllun Mân anhwylderau, Cynllun Meddyginiaethau Brys a chynllun dull atal cenhedlu hormonal brys – am restr cyflawn ewch i: http://www.wales.nhs.uk/sitesplus/862/tudalen/94142
