St. Davids update

Please note there will be a public meeting at 7.00pm on Friday 17th June at 7.00pm in the Neuadd.

An application by Professor David Jones for information under the Freedom of Information Act regarding the application by St. Davids for hospital status was turned down by the Care Standards Inspectorate Wales and details of the grounds for the refusal were supplied in a letter. The grounds were basically because the release of information would not have been in the public interest of the Company, Mental Health Care Uk Ltd. An appeal will now be lodged with the Ombudsman.

The problem was and is the total lack of communication with Mental Health Care UK who did not attend the last public meeting and appear unlikely to attend this one. When there is such apparent disregard for the concerns of the surrounding communities and a total lack of information it is not surprising that the normal response will be opposition.
