Commenting following his exchange with Labour’s Health Minister on potential air ambulance base closures in Mid and North Wales, Russell George MS, Welsh Conservative Shadow Health Minister said:
“Keeping the air ambulance bases open in both Welshpool and Caernarfon will be vital to ensure specialised medical care arrives quickly to incidents in rural Mid and North Wales.
“Communities in Mid and North Wales rely on an air ambulance service to make up for the poorer, more sparse local health provision, lack of district general hospitals and road access issues.
“I am calling on the Labour Health Minister to intervene, urgently. The people of Mid and North Wales need and deserve a reliable service at the Welshpool and Caernarfon sites.”
