CARDIFF and Vale is one of the five health boards in South Wales currently discussing with local people and staff how best to provide some of their specialist services in the region in the future.

At this stage they are not talking about firm options and no decisions have been made.

You can find out why the South Wales Programme is important for you by attending a meeting on November 27 (6-8pm) at the Board Room, University Hospital Llandough.

Paul Hollard, director of planning for Cardiff and Vale University Health Board, said: "The South Wales Programme is at a very important stage in considering how we might shape the future of some of the region's specialist services, and we value the opportunity to outline the issues to the public and hear their views.

“We would encourage as many people as possible to attend the engagement session and tell us what they think."

All are welcome and there is no need to book - just turn up on the evening.
