Plans go on display this week for a new primary care and community services centre.

ABMU Health Board says it's proposing to transfer GP and community services to the new centre, aiming to improve the level of patient care and providing some new services.

Leaflets explaining the proposals are being sent to patients.

The search for a suitable site to build a new centre has been ongoing since 2006 because, the Health Board says, the main Portway Surgery site is too small and doesn’t offer the accommodation required to deliver modern services.

The Welsh Government says research shows that 1 in 5 teenage girls have been assaulted by a boyfriend. But a new campaign aims to show abuse is not limited to physical attacks.

It says emotional abuse like constant criticism,isolation from friends and family, control of personal appearance and of finances can be just as damaging.

The campaign's aimed at 16-24 year olds and will start online.

This phase of the Live Fear Free campaign targets young people, who might not always be considered at risk of gender-based violence, domestic abuse and sexual violence.

Understanding healthy and unhealthy behaviour in relationships, could help young people to get advice and support sooner or prevent destructive behaviour .”
