We are calling on the Health Board and Welsh Government to ensure that we have nursing bed provision on Pen Llŷn
There are concerns about the future of Penrhos nursging home, following the news that the Polish Housing Society is intending to close the site by March 2021.
There are hopes that another organisation will take the site on, but doubts about the future of the nursing beds.
Penrhos has played an important part in the recent history of Pen Llŷn, and it's a nursing home for the people of Pen Llŷn.
There is no other nursing home on the peninsula, which means that people would have to travel to Cricieth, Porthmadog or further afield in order to have a place in another nursing home.There is a demand for nursing beds in Pen Llŷn.
It is the duty of the Health Board and Welsh Government to ensure that our needs are provided for. As the population gets older and our health needs more complex, the damend for nursing care increases.
We call on the Welsh Government and Health Board to work together and ensure that nurse bed provision continues here in Pen Llŷn.
