Patients in and around Wrexham are set to benefit from a multi million pound Welsh Government investment in new ambulances.
In total, 111 new vehicles will be deployed across Wales, costing over £13.5 million.
The Welsh Government believes the newer vehicles will be more reliable, promising better performance and lower running costs.
There will be 71 emergency ambulances, 33 non-emergency patient transport vehicles and 7 specialist emergency vehicles that will attend major incidents.
All the new vehicles will be chosen for their ‘cleaner, greener’ credentials, with the 33 non-emergency patient transport vehicles being fitted with solar panels to convert available sunlight into electricity.
Wrexham Assembly Member, Lesley Griffiths has hailed the Welsh Government’s substantial investment and said: “This significant upgrade of the existing Welsh Ambulance Service fleet will help ensure patients receive the best possible treatment.”
“The new, more reliable modern vehicles will help provide a high-quality clinical service for the people of Wrexham and Wales, improving the care, comfort and safety of patients, as well as working conditions for the dedicated staff.”

Pendine Park Proprietor Mario Kreft.

A leading care organisation has revealed £15 million plans to build a dementia centre of excellence in Wrexham and redevelop another site in the town, creating 150 new jobs.

Pendine Park say they are responding to the huge need for more specialist care because of the soaring number of people aged 85 and over which is due to double over the next two decades.

According to proprietor Mario Kreft MBE, the inward investment will also provide a major boost to the local economy.

The design of dementia centre at Pendine Park’s site in Summerhill Road will be based on their award winning Bryn Seiont Newydd home in Caernarfon which was named as the best new care home of its kind in the UK after it opened in 2016.

In parallel they are aiming to redevelop their Hillbury care home across town in Hightown.
