An outline business case for the development of a Wellbeing Centre to be based in Cross Hands is to be resubmitted to Welsh Government, Hywel Dda University Health Board has announced.

The business case outlines the health board’s intention to develop an integrated health and social care network of services for the Amman Gwendraeth area and the construction of a Wellbeing Centre.

If approved, the centre will provide a base for health and care services which will accommodate two local GP practices (Tumble and Penygroes), a library, family centre, community pharmacy and also community police support officers and voluntary sector groups.

The health board say the Covid-19 pandemic has changed the way they deliver some health and care services. Hywel Dda say they have been working with partners and stakeholders to refresh the business case for the development to ensure that these continue to be fit for the population’s health and care needs both now and in the future. 

It is anticipated that the Business Case will be resubmitted to Welsh Government in Spring 2022.

Rhian Dawson, Integrated System Director for Hywel Dda University Health Board and Carmarthenshire County Council, said: “I am delighted that we are now able to refocus on the development of the Wellbeing Centre in Cross Hands. This will not only be an asset for Cross Hands but will benefit Carmarthenshire as a whole. While it is unfortunate that the pandemic has delayed our progress, it has also demonstrated the importance of delivering services as close to home as possible.”

It is anticipated that the Centre could potentially be complete in 36 months from the approval of the Outline Business case.
