The health board says it continues to look for a suitable location for a new facility in Cefn Mawr after concerns were raised by councillors.

At a meeting of Cefn Mawr Community Council, councillors expressed their frustration at the lack of progress being made with the proposed new surgery.

Cllr chairman, Phil Vaughan, said: “It feels like we’ve gone back three years. We’ve been told on numerous occasions by Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board (BCUHB) themselves that Cefn Mawr is priority - and it feels like we’ve been kicked in the teeth.”

One proposed idea for the new surgery that the Community Council put forward to BCUHB included merging it with the currently not-in-use Ebenezer Chapel - which Cllr Vaughan said would also “provide nearby residents somewhere to park for free during the weekends” and it could be done with a “£1m budget which includes the purchase of the building itself”.

Cllr Lisa Prescott-Ennis, added: “We’ve got one little surgery covering too many areas.”

Cllr Sonia Benbow-Jones, said: “It feels that the health board are just telling us things just to shut us up.

“We need a decent surgery around here.”

Cllr Gaynor Wright, argued that a “petition may help get things moving.”

Following the meeting a spokesman for Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board, said: “We have examined a number of proposed sites in Cefn Mawr that may be available for development. Although a number of these sites have been deemed unsuitable for the requirements of a Health Centre, we are continuing to look into those that may have potential.”
