Solva Surgery

Solva Surgery says farewell to Lucy Harries
Lucy Harries has been our practice nurse for 27 yrs. First appointed by Dr. Gillam, Lucy then formed the team with Jane and Alison at Maes yr Eglwys Solva Surgery. An excellent family Nurse and an experienced practice sister, Lucy looks holistically at every aspect of patient care. Her great interest in Asthma management led to a Diploma in Asthma care and she has made a tremendous impact on patients living with Asthma and COPD, supporting the management of their condition and thus improving quality of life.
Lucy played a vital role in the management for minor surgery, taking complete care from consent, to the final biopsy results and further management. She is always ready to help with telephone triaging, or with answering any questions or concerns.
Lucy is a caring, compassionate professional nurse, who is considerate and supportive to patients, colleagues, doctors and staff alike. Without a doubt, she will be greatly missed.

Ruby Pulley is the new leader of the group and she commented “As I enjoy working with children I was excited when I heard of the opportunity to manage a playgroup in Solva.
This is a new experience for me and so I’ll be learning as I go on how I can improve and make the playgroup reach the children’s, parents’ and/or carers expectations. It will be an inexpensive entry with refreshments available. The playgroup will provide toys and activities for everyone to enjoy and I hope to work along side of everyone that takes part.

February’s business meeting had a slightly longer format than usual – a pattern that looks likely to be the norm for the foreseeable future while we cross the t’s and dot the i’s etc. for our celebration plans in the summer.
However, after our teas/coffees, we were treated to a wonderful demonstration of how to create a painting.
Sandra Phillips, our visiting artist, started with a blank canvas and proceeded to bring it to life, magically, with clever use of colour mixing, imagination and talented expertise. “It just looked so easy,” seemed to be the opinion of the enthralled members.
Our next meeting on Thursday, March 9th will feature a talk on ‘Birds and Wildlife of Costa Rica’.
As always new members are welcome.
