In the Trust
Tŷ Aberdafen, BIRT’s centre in Wales, was visited last week by leader of Plaid Cymru Leanne Wood AM. Ms Wood was accompanied by Helen Mary Jones, Plaid’s candidate for Llanelli in the forthcoming Welsh Assembly elections. During the visit they met with people living at the service, and discussed issues of health and social care, including the economic benefits of specialist rehabilitation, with service staff. The visit was covered in the local press. We have also offered other parties’ candidates the opportunity to visit the service.
