The long-awaited Minor Injuries Unit at Ysbyty Cwm Cynon has opened BUT not for Cynon Valley Kids WHY?

The long-awaited Minor Injuries Unit at Ysbyty Cwm Cynon has opened or has it? Reading below Cynon Valley now has a Minor Injuries Unit but not for all who reside in Cynon Valley. It is clear the Cwm Taf Morgannwg don’t want to treat our children in the Mountain Ash unit now placing a restriction to 16 years of age limit before you are eligible to be having treatment at the unit. So what are we to believe when NHS Wales 111has a different account on treatment for our kids at Mountain Ash, Service does: Age Restrictions No child under 1 year old - regardless of injury? Why? Why is Cynon Valley second best again why are MS Vikki Howells and MP Beth Winter allowing this to happen? What are there for? As it is the unit has been closed for months now it part-time and not walk in as before but by appointment only, just like a doctor's surgery where you can't get an appointment for weeks. Compare Ysbyty Cwm Rhondda Minor Injury Unit Monday to Friday 8 AM until 5 PM Age Restrictions No child under 1 year old - regardless of injury. The Minor Injuries Unit at Ysbyty Cwm Cynon has now re-opened. The Unit is currently open on a Tuesday and Thursday 9am-11am. Please note-the Unit is now run on an appointment basis only - by ringing 01443 444075 or 01443 444060 – you will then be triaged over the phone and signposted to the most appropriate service to help you with your condition. The MIU can only treat people over the age of 16 years old, children under 16 years old will be guided to the correct service on triage (phone call).
