Breconshire War Memorial Hospital
The community around Brecon for many years has been fortunate to be served by a community hospital that has provided hospital services close to patients’ homes. The hospital in turn has regularly benefited from the appreciation shown by patients and relatives. The “community spirit” that has sustained the hospital is now helping to advance the quality and variety of care provided at Brecon. In recent years the changes in healthcare provision have accelerated the improvements at “our” hospital: the care of the elderly wing, colposcopy unit, new X-ray department, new theatre suite and recovery/day unit and palliative care suite and a minor injuries unit.
The Brecon Medical Group Practice has supported and involved itself in the changes and we are proud of the hospital's reputation. All the practice partners are actively involved in providing patient services at the hospital. Patients are admitted under the care of their general practitioners in the medical and short stay surgical departments.
The hospital has 27 surgical/medical/rehabilitation beds plus a 10-bed EMI unit available at the hospital under consultant care. Visiting consultants from surrounding district general hospitals regularly attend and provide both outpatient clinics and surgical lists.
When attending Brecon Hospital, patients are advised to park in the visitors' car park whenever possible and not around the hospital entrance as this may obstruct emergency vehicles.
Patients' Participation Group
The practice has a Patients' Participation Group. In a continuous endeavour to improve the provision of healthcare, the practice engages in regular dialogue with representatives of the group. You may leave at reception any written communication for the group which will be forwarded to the Chairman.
