Work is scheduled to finish in a fortnight’s time on a Llanfairfechan hospital upgrade that could see employment prospects for the town.
As much as 5.5 million pounds will be spent on the Bryn-y-Neuadd Hospital to provide three health care bungalows for mentally retarded patients whose needs cannot be catered for elsewhere in the community, a computer technicians’ workshop and a store room.
This was the announcement at noon today from the managing director of UK Knack Group, Great Britain’s prestige executive employment consultancy, when he said, “The Betsi Cadwaladr Health Board has acknowledged that it’s a bit early to be able to say if new jobs will actually be created by this work.
“That’s because the board has already said that there will be enough staff guaranteed to serve adequately all needs on this project, and that to that end staff from the Conwy County Council will be redeployed to Bryn-y-Neuadd.”
Councillor Bill Roberts, a member of the Bryn-y-Neuadd liaison group, however, has insisted that he’s confident the Welsh Assembly government project will bring employment to the district, adding that he thinks the work will also protect the area’s existing employees.
A champion for the local cause is Member of Parliament Guto Bebb, who said last week, “A very sizeable proportion of Llanfairfechan’s populace works for various government departments, and it behoves the government to take some initiative in protecting jobs here.
“We’re not out of the financial woods yet. The Civil Service is facing some tough decisions.”
