Hello All

Please note below details of the newly launched health board wide out-patient contact centre, giving patients greater choice and reducing waiting times for hospital appointments.

Anyone needing to arrange, confirm, alter or cancel an outpatient appointment within any of the three counties can now contact one central number on 0300 303 9642 and there is a free “call-back” service to avoid having to wait in a queue on the phone.

Based at Prince Philip Hospital, Llanelli, the service brings together outpatient bookings for Carmarthenshire, Ceredigion and Pembrokeshire, which will ensure that appointments can be arranged at the earliest opportunity for those willing to travel.

I would be grateful if you could share the new contact number with your networks, friends and family.

Old phone numbers are now inactive, but callers will be re-directed.

Many thanks. Jackie

Pension Wise Service with CAB

Following changes to the regulations regarding accessing of Pension savings that came into force in April this year, the Pension Wise service is now fully operational throughout Pembrokeshire.

Pension Wise is a free and impartial Government service offering guidance to people approaching or over 55 years of age who would like information on accessing their Defined Contribution pensions. It does not provide regulated financial advice and it won’t recommend companies or products or tell individuals how they should use their pension pot or invest their money.

Guidance appointments are currently available in the Citizen’s Advice Bureaux in Haverfordwest and Pembroke Dock as well as in Milford Haven, Fishguard, Narberth and St Clears.

I have attached a poster and a leaflet for your information and would like to ask if we sent copies in the post whether you could arrange for them to be displayed to the general public and distributed to your members.

If you require any further information or would like the Pension Wise Team to make a presentation to a particular group, please contact the Pension Wise Team on 01646 621884 or by e-mail topensionwise@pembscab.org.uk

Yours sincerely
