Haygarth Doctors – Important notice

Important Notice from Haygarth Doctors


Haygarth Doctors has made an application to Powys Local Health Board to reduce opening hours at both Hay and Talgarth Medical Centres from the 1st October 2020.

Hay Medical Centre will be closed on a Tuesday and Wednesday afternoon from 1pm 

Talgarth Medical Centre will be closed on a Monday, Thursday and Friday afternoon from 1pm.

Emergency appointments will be continue to be available on one site in the afternoon as they have been. The Prescription collection points (hatches) will remain open until 5pm at the closed Medical Centres to allow patients to collect prescriptions.

We have been advised that the funding stream to support our Total Nurse Triage project is due to cease at the end of September and therefore we were advised to make choices regarding service provision should we wish the pilot to continue.

The Total Nurse Triage pilot has been a hugely successful project and has been proven to be beneficial to our patients and our practice team. This pilot has greatly improved patient access to GP appointments, previously patients had to wait of 2 to 4 weeks for a routine GP appointment and the wait reduced to an average of 3-4 days after the Total Nurse Triage was introduced. We were able to increase the time of a GP appointment, allowing the GPs to spend more time with patients when needed.

The Total Nurse Triage system is completely embedded within the practice, it is now an integral part of our working practice for both staff and patients alike. The reduction in opening hours will allow us to maintain this essential service for our patients.

Should you wish to comment on the application please contact:

Jayne Lawrence, Assistant Director of Primary Care at The Primary Care Department, Powys Teaching Health Board, The Gwalia, Llandrindod Wells  

email: PrimaryCareGeneral.Powys@wales.nhs.uk with any concerns with a copy to Powys Community Health Council enquiries.powyschc@waleschc.org.uk 

by Friday 18th September 2020.

CORRESPONDENCE

  1. We have received an anonymous comment via the web site regarding the approval of planning application 19/1496/FUL – Construction of a cabin for holiday use, access improvements and associated works. They expressed concern that the property may be used for permanent occupation. This concern was also raised directly to Powys Planning and is noted on the delegated decision report.

At the time of the application Clyro Community Council did not have any objection.

Approval was given by Powys County Council and on checking the delegated decision condition 15 is in place to prevent the use of the property for permanent occupation:

  • 15. The development shall be occupied as holiday accommodation only and shall not be occupied as a person’s sole or main place of residence by any persons. An up to date register shall be kept at the holiday accommodation hereby permitted and be made available for inspection by the local planning authority upon request. The register shall contain details of the names of all of the occupiers of the accommodation, their main home addresses and their date of arrival and departure from the accommodation.
  • 15. In order to ensure control of the use of the holiday unit and to prevent the establishment of permanent residency in accordance with Powys Local Development Plan Policy TD1.

It is not within the remit of CCC to police the execution of planning applications (this would be Powys CC) but hopefully the above information will provide reassurance to the concerned party.

  1. The Committee of the Three Cocks Vintage and Steam Rally have made the difficult decision to cancel what would have been the 40th annual rally at Boatside Farm on Sunday 9th August 2020.  They are now planning the 40th rally that will fall on Sunday 8th August 2021.

Update on Clyro Play Park

I am incredibly pleased to see the ground works have commenced and are well under way at the new Clyro Play Park adjacent to Castle Estate. On Tuesday I met the contractor MH Davies from Sennybridge and Jon Watson from Powys Engineering Works Dept on site and discussed some minor tweaks to the plans and I am excited to see the site beginning to take shape.

This phase of work will create the basic layout and shape to the park including the terraces with benches, the mound for the slide with built in tunnel running through the mound beneath the slide, stone dust path ascending to the top of the site. concrete base for the top bench and access gate for mowing maintenance.

The dog walking/recreation wildlife area has had the walking path mown and the areas around the outside rotavated in preparation for the planting which is planned for the autumn.

MH Davies have also put in crossing points with dipped curbs on the Castle Estate and the pedestrian accesses for the new housing site onto the pavement of A438.

It is good to see the progress of such a positive project that looks forward to a time when we will able to meet up, socialise and play again.

The Community Council will continue to work with Powys and the contractors over the coming months to help shape the final design of the play park into a place that will be used and enjoyed by all members of our community and if Councillors or members of the community have ideas or suggestions for the play park please contact me via the clerk or directly by email at rogwells@me.com

Roger Wells (Chair Clyro Community Council)
