Due to Storm Dennis there has been significant rainfall across Cwm Taf Morgannwg. We are thinking of everyone who has been affected by this weather and urge everyone to take care and stay safe.

We’re very grateful for people volunteering to drive staff in 4x4s but please be reassured we have enough vehicles for our community teams and would ask that people do not put themselves at risk by making unnecessary journeys.

There are a number of roads closed and some villages are inaccessible so staff, relatives and visitors are asked to stay indoors and only travel if absolutely necessary. Please check roads are open and safe before you make any journeys.

Ysbyty Cwm Cynon in Mountain Ash is now accessible, please take care.

Porth Dental Unit will be closed tomorrow due to flooding. Text messages have been sent out to the patients with routine appointments. The unit will accept and triage calls. If you need advice please don’t visit the unit, but ring instead.

Patients of Eglwys Bach Surgery, Pontypridd – the surgery has been flooded. Restricted services will be run from the two branch surgeries at Tonteg and Ynysybwl – more info here.

Staff – if you need transport support to get to and from sites, please contact our Adverse Weather Hubs. YCC will be manned until 8pm and PCH will be manned until 9pm. All hubs will be active again from 5.30am tomorrow (Monday) and are on the below numbers:
📞 PCH 28503
📞 RGH 74051/74054
📞 YCC 25294

The Welsh Ambulance’s non-emergency transport service will run as near to normal as possible tomorrow, recognising they will need to drive to the conditions. If you’re not able to travel tomorrow or your appointment is postponed/ cancelled, please let them know by calling them tomorrow on 0300 123 2303.

We will continue to provide updates via our social media.

Thank you to all our staff who are working incredibly hard and to the public for their support at this difficult time.
