Hooray for Hywel Dda

Hooray for Hywel Dda

10 August 2021 Off By admin

A few months ago PLANED was approached by Hywel Dda University Health Board with a request to run a series of podcasts for them. Along with my colleague, Cris Tomos, I spent a lot of time arranging interviews with people who work within the Hywel Dda team. There were seven episodes recorded in all with three of them in Welsh and the remaining ones in English. A new episode will be released on the Monday morning of each week for the next five weeks (two have been released already).

When I recorded the interviews we were still under lockdown restrictions in Wales so six of the seven recordings were made over the phone. Katherine, though, was able to talk in person.

You can hear me talk to Katherine Lewis, Team Manager Older Adult Community Mental Health Team; Hashim Samir, Consultant Radiologist; Amber Davies, Healthcare Apprentice; and Heidi Blofield, Senior Sister at YESS Field Hospital, Llanelli. Cris talks in Welsh with Euryl Howells, Senior Chaplain; Vicky Evans, Maternity Unit Coordinator (Senior Midwife) and Mererid Davies, Pediatric Speech and Language Therapist. You can download a transcript of each conversation in both English and Welsh from the podcast website. But only when that particular episode goes live … no sneak previews!

You can hear the podcasts either by subscribing to the Podlediadau Hywel Dda Podcasts feed or by visiting the home page: hyweldda.libsyn.com
