Dave, your point is valid, but we are where we are now.
Very little is being done to address a very immediate looming crisis, not only in health care but the hospitality trade, construction and food production.
That’s if those who are trying to recruit for those industries are to believed.
We will end up paying the price, one way or another.

Did anyone know that the plans have changed. Realising that he wasn't going to get access to the pier for his atrium exit Waldron has brought the building in by a couple of metres behind the colonnade iron pillars to form a "veranda" along that side. (So the whole building will be slightly narrower). I don't think there is a new 'artists impression' in fact I doubt Waldron would want one produced as it will now look even worse. This 'veranda' space will be a long corridor along the pier side of the building, it will be narrow and probably quite gloomy, being behind the blue pier kiosks as it will be, it will probably be an awful space! The final consent documents have now been issued, with several conditions which have to be met before building work can start. One condition being that a full geological survey has to be done to prove the building work won't affect the Ty Gwyn mine or cause any tunnel collapses.

This should be regarded as good news then:

"There has been a big jump in students from Wales starting to study medicine at UK universities, according to latest figures. There were 410 medical or dentistry students from Wales with places in 2018 - a 23% increase on 2017. This number is the highest for at least 10 years and the rise outstrips other UK nations. Experts describe the figures as a "fantastic" landmark in efforts to tackle staff shortages in NHS Wales.

Only five years to wait...

The problems with recruitment in medicine have been known for years. We're all living longer but becoming less healthy while Medicine is advancing in what it can accomplish so the 'perfect storm' of demand increase and supply shortfall is unlikely to be solved through a few extra students opting for medicine. One issue is that Medicine is no longer perceived as a aspiration; the days when being a Doctor was seen as somehow special have gone, as we're seeing from the crisis in GP surgeries.

We're going to need far more NHS workers from abroad in the years to come.

Concerns raised about impact Pier Pavilion development may have on Llandudno mine.

Concerns have been raised about how controversial construction plans on a site in Llandudno will impact on a historically important mine site.
The Ty Gwyn Mine coffin levels run directly underneath North Road behind the Llandudno Pier, right up to the boarder of the proposed Pier Pavilion site.

Debbie Wareham, part of the Maritime Heritage Social Enterprise and Charity, has raised concerns the Pier Pavilion development planned could impact on the Ty Gwyn Mine, a site she said had national and local importance.      Ref Pioneer
