Temporary Move of Adult Mental Health Inpatient Services from Ystradgynlais to Brecon

In order to allow major building repairs to Ystradgynlais Hospital, it has been necessary to move patients from the Tawe Ward to Brecon Hospital.

This temporary measure will ensure the safety of patients, their families and staff while this work is underway. The work includes the replacement and repair of much of the roof and is anticipated to be complete in the spring of 2022 when the Tawe ward will return to Ystradgynlais.

Extensive preparation work has been undertaken to ensure the least amount of disruption to staff and patients.

On behalf of the Mental Health and Learning Disabilities Directorate, we would like to thank all those who have supported the planning and implementation of the move.

In particular, we would like to say a huge thank you to whole Tawe Team for their positive attitude, commitment to the best continuity of high-quality care and response to what has needed to be done to ensure minimum disruption for patients.
