Prynwyd y safle gyda £727,000 o gyllid gan Lywodraeth Cymru. Dadorchuddiwyd arwydd ar y safle gan yr Athro Drakeford, ynghyd â Phrif Weithredwr Bwrdd Iechyd Prifysgol Hywel Dda, Steve Moore ac Arweinydd Cyngor Sir Ceredigion, y Cynghorydd Ellen ap Gwynn i nodi bod y tir wedi’i brynu. Bydd datblygiad Cylch Caron yn dod ag iechyd, tai a gwasanaethau cymdeithasol ynghyd ar un safle gan gymryd lle Ysbyty Cymunedol Tregaron, cartref preswyl Bryntirion a’r feddygfa. Dywedodd yr Athro Drakeford: “Rwy’n falch o allu cyhoeddi’r cam pwysig hwn yn natblygiad canolfan newydd Cylch Caron. Y llynedd, fe wnes i a’r Gweinidog Cymunedau a Threchu Tlodi, Lesley Griffiths, gyhoeddi £5.8m ar gyfer y ganolfan newydd, lle bydd gwasanaethau pwysig ar gael o dan yr un to ac yn agosach at y bobl sydd eu hangen.

“Trwy gydweithio a chanolbwyntio ar ymyrraeth gynnar, bydd y gwasanaethau hyn yn helpu pobl i fyw bywydau egnïol ac annibynnol.” Dywedodd y Cynghorydd Ellen ap Gwynn, Arweinydd Cyngor Sir Ceredigion a chadeirydd y bwrdd gwasanaethau lleol: “Mae’r cyhoeddiad hwn yn garreg filltir allweddol i brosiect Cylch Caron, ac rydyn ni un cam yn agosach at ddarparu gwasanaethau tai, iechyd a chymdeithasol effeithlon a chynaliadwy o ansawdd uchel sy’n gwasanaethu cymuned wledig Tregaron a’r ardaloedd cyfagos. “Bydd y datblygiad yn fwy nag adeilad. Bydd yn hwyluso’r gwaith o ddarparu’r model gofal cymunedol integredig a ddatblygwyd ar gyfer Ceredigion, a bydd gan lawer mwy o gleientiaid fynediad gwell at y gwasanaethau hyn.”

Dywedodd Prif Weithredwr Bwrdd Iechyd Prifysgol Hywel Dda, Steve Moore: “Mae hyn yn newyddion gwych i Dregaron. Rwy’n falch ein bod wedi gallu gweithio gyda chydweithwyr o Lywodraeth Cymru a Chyngor Sir Ceredigion i gyrraedd y pwynt arwyddocaol hwn yn y prosiect. “Bydd y datblygiad yn ffordd o weithio’n integredig i sicrhau gwerth am arian a chaniatáu cyfleoedd newydd i ddarparu’r gwasanaethau sydd eu hangen ar y boblogaeth leol. “Hoffwn dalu teyrnged i’n holl randdeiliaid, gan gynnwys ein staff a chydweithwyr yr awdurdod lleol am eu cyfraniad at gyrraedd y garreg filltir hon yn y prosiect.

Edrychwn ymlaen at barhau i gydweithio â’n partneriaid i gyflawni’r datblygiad.” Mae datblygiad Cylch Caron, dan arweiniad Bwrdd Gwasanaethau Lleol Ceredigion, yn bosibl diolch i gyfanswm buddsoddiad o £8.1m gan Lywodraeth Cymru, Cyngor Sir Ceredigion a Bwrdd Iechyd Prifysgol Hywel Dda i ddarparu gwasanaethau cynaliadwy yn un o rannau mwyaf gwledig Cymru. Bydd y ganolfan yn gartref i amrywiaeth o wasanaethau, gan gynnwys meddygfa, fferyllfa gymunedol, clinigau i gleifion allanol, gwasanaethau nyrsio yn y gymuned, gofal nyrsio hirdymor a gofal dydd.

Mae yna hefyd gynlluniau ar gyfer 34 o fflatiau i bobl sydd angen mwy o ofal a chymorth i aros yn eu cartrefi, a chwe lle iechyd a gofal cymdeithasol integredig i bobl nad oes angen iddyn nhw aros yn yr ysbyty, ond sydd angen mwy o gymorth cyn dychwelyd adref. Mae’r gwaith yn symud ymlaen ar y cynlluniau manwl ar gyfer prosiect Cylch Caron – bydd yr achos busnes llawn yn cael ei gyflwyno i Lywodraeth Cymru ac erbyn yr haf, bydd Landlord Cymdeithasol Cofrestredig wedi’i benodi. Chwaraeodd Elin Jones ran bwysig yn y datblygiadau hyn, fel y dywedodd y Gweinidog yn ei sylwadau.

AC Ceredigion drefnodd y cyfarfod cychwynol rhwng y Gweinidog a grwp o feddygon lleol, a berswadiodd Llywodraeth Cymru o’r angen am ddechrau o’r newydd wrth gynllunio dyfodol Bronglais a’r NHS yng Nghymru wledig. Ers hynny, comisiynwydd Adolygiad Longley, a arweiniodd at sefydlu grwp cydweithredol y canolbarth, a chamau gwirioneddol ymlaen fel agor 12 o welyau ym Mronglais a hysbysebu swyddi newydd arbenigol yn nhriniaeth y galon a meysydd eraill. Meddai Elin Jones: “Mae’n destun balchder i mi y bydd ardal Tregaron yn gartref i’r prosiect gofal iechyd cymdeithasol integredig, modern hwn. “Bydd nifer o gyfleusterau yng Nghylch Caron.

Mae’r Bwrdd Iechyd wedi cadarnhau y bydd chwe gwely yn cael eu darparu i gymryd lle’r Ysbyty presennol. Bydd hefyd yno feddygfa, ac amrywiaeth o lety preswyl a gofal, yn cael eu darparu gan yr awdurdod lleol a’r drydedd sector. “Ni ddylai’r Gwasanaeth Iechyd anghofio’n hardaloedd gwledig. Y ffordd ymlaen, yn fy marn i, yw i integreiddio gofal iechyd a chymdeithasol yn llawn. Mae’r buddsoddiad yma yn hwb i ardal Tregaron, a gobeithio bydd yn fodel y bydd ardaloedd eraill am ei efelychu.”

Ceredigion lifesavers go the extra mile during lockdown

Published

on

Loyal blood donors in Ceredigion have responded to a request from the Welsh
Blood Service to ‘donate differently’ by rolling up their sleeves to make a
lifesaving donation at one of the Service’s new regional hubs.

Across Wales, of the 6,808 individuals that visited a Welsh Blood Service donation
session in May 63% of donors attended a clinic that was not their usual donation
venue.

In Ceredigion, 293 donors came forward to give blood in May, with 34 attending a
donation session for the very first time.

Following a series of Covid-19 related venue cancellations and social distancing
restrictions, the Welsh Blood Service was unable to host donation sessions at the thirty
community venues it would typically visit across Wales each week.

The Service introduced a new collections schedule at the beginning of April which saw
collections taken from five regional donation hubs at different locations in Wales each
week. Donors were asked to travel to donate at their nearest hub.

Alan Prosser, Director of the Welsh Blood Service, said: “When it became clear we
couldn’t continue with business as usual, we knew we’d have to ask donors to donate
differently. Our regional donation hubs have replaced our usual local collections
programme and the response from donors has been remarkable.

“98.3% of the appointments we’ve made available since lockdown have been taken
and many of these appointments have been taken by donors who have been prepared
to go even further out of their way than they usually would just to make a potentially
lifesaving donation.”

The Service has also observed a sharp rise in the number of new donors coming
forward to donate.

Mr Prosser continued: “In May 2019, around 11% of those that attended our donation
sessions were new donors. This May, around 19% of our attendance has been people
who had never given before.

“We’ve also see a surge in the number of donors who haven’t given in years returning
to our sessions to help us boost stocks. It’s been amazing and we’re hugely grateful.”

Blood stocks in Wales have remained healthy throughout the pandemic as the reduced
collections activity has mirrored a reduction in the volume of blood used by hospitals.
However, the Service is urging donors to continue to attend their local sessions as and
when lockdown restrictions are lifted.

“Blood stocks are currently very healthy thanks to the commitment of new and existing
donors but we need people to keep giving blood to ensure we can continue to meet
hospital demand in the coming months. Travel to donate is considered essential travel
and anyone who is fit, well and eligible to donate can book an appointment through the
welshblood.org.uk website.”

Porth Cymorth Cynnar supporting residents in Ceredigion

Published

on

During this challenging period, Porth Cymorth Cynnar has established a virtual platform to ensure that we are able to keep in touch with vulnerable residents across Ceredigion.

Due to the restrictions introduced to safeguard our communities against COVID-19, many residents are not able to access their usual provision or support such as parent groups or GP Referral Exercise Classes. Instead, we are ensuring that all residents whom are known to our services, and others, are kept in touch with, through regular welfare calls, should they wish.

Around 2000 residents from young people to families to carers, who may require or benefit from regular contact whilst their service is not operating in its usual form, will receive communication from our staff.

To date, almost 2000 welfare calls have been made, and have been well received by people across Ceredigion. Residents have said that it is great that someone is keeping in touch with them, to give them an opportunity to have a weekly phone call and someone to talk to.

Mrs Jones* (name changed for anonymity) who is 92 and lives alone, is used to receiving regular visits from Ceredigion’s mobile library was identified as benefiting from a weekly phone call, to check how she was doing, now that her usual library service would not be visiting for a while. Porth Cymorth Cynnar aimed to get in touch with Mrs Jones, but did not have a contact number. After tracking down a contact number through the local directory, a member of the Porth y Gymuned team was able to make contact. Luckily Mrs Jones has the support of family and neighbours to collect groceries, but nonetheless was extremely grateful to have someone to talk to, and to check that she is OK. A weekly phone check in has been organised with Mrs Jones, to ensure that she is doing well and to organise if she is in need of anything.

If you, or anyone you know would benefit from the Keeping in Touch Service, please get in touch with our Customer Services team on 01545 570881 or clic@ceredigion.gov.uk who will triage your query to Porth Cymorth Cynnar.

Porth Cymorth Cynnar are also regularly updating resource lists which are available on the Ceredigion County Council website here: http://www.ceredigion.gov.uk/coronavirus

The latest on plastic free Ceredigion

Published

on

At its meeting held on 17 March, the Council’s Cabinet received an activity update from the Plastic Free Ceredigion Task and Finish Group, which was set up after full Council approved a motion on 22 February 2018.

Full Council approved the ‘Plastic Free campaigns throughout the County, including Plastic Free Aberporth and Plastic Free Aberystwyth’ motion to ensure that the Council helps to reduce the amount of single use plastics used in our day to day operations.

The motion involved a number of factors including; reducing single-use plastics within Council facilities and offices and encouraging local businesses, organisations, schools and communities to move away from single-use plastics and use sustainable alternatives. Promoting the use of sustainable alternatives to single-use plastics at all Council supported events, supporting beach cleans and any other events which aim to raise awareness of the issues of single-use plastics.

Since 22 February 2018, the Council have removed 5 single-use plastic that were used across the local authority, implemented projects in conjunction with NRW with local primary schools, worked closely with communities throughout Ceredigion and commenced the provision of Water bottle re-fills on request to all visitors to our public facing buildings.

In January 2020, the Schools Service were successful in bidding for funding from the Circular Economy Capital Fund, which allows for the purchasing of milk dispensers which will remove the need for the provision of plastic milk bottles and straws by 1,979 pupils at Foundation and Key Stage 2. This is equivalent to a reduction of 376,010 plastic milk bottles per school year.

Councillor Alun Williams, Member Champion for Sustainability said, “These are initiatives which, together, make a real difference to the amount of single-use plastics going into the waste stream from Council activities. Whilst it’s important that everyone seeks to minimise their use of single-use plastics, it’s particularly important that large organisations like councils take these kinds of actions because they can have a wider effect which, in turn, can lead to industry changing to more sustainable practices. Ceredigion Council is trying to lead the way in showing what’s possible within an organisation.”

This supports one of the Council’s corporate priority of Promoting Environmental and Community Resilience.
