Some of the Ophthalmology clinics at Ysbyty Cwm Rhondda have had to be temporarily relocated due to high levels of staff sickness.
We hope this service will resume soon but in the meantime the AMD Macula (Lucentis) clinic has been re-established at the Royal Glamorgan Hospital in Llantrisant and patients will be re-booked as soon as they can be accommodated there.
Some other Ophthalmology clinics are still running as normal at Ysbyty Cwm Rhondda. Any patients who are affected by the cancellations will be contacted by the hospital if they have an appointment which needs to be postponed or re-located.
The Health Board is doing its best to resolve the issue and apologises to patients for any inconvenience caused.
If you are concerned about your appointment please contact 01443 443239 or 01443 443240. Patients will be seen on a clinical need basis.
