About: Dolgellau & Barmouth Day Hospital Tywyn & District War Memorial Hospital

(as the patient),

Husband called local Hospital in Tywyn as I was short of breathe due to an asthma attack, There M. I. U was closed so asked to call Dolgellau Hospital.

They couldn't treat me or let me in the hospital as there was no out of hrs doctor available for 4 hours.

Go 37 miles to Altwen Porthmadog to see If they can treat me.

We live in a rural area were there is no access to public transport of a weekend to hospital, therefore creating a system if you have no transport tough.

Also, we have a very restricted ambulance cover.
