We are fully aware of the strong feelings being expressed today regarding the relocation of the clinics from Flint Community Hospital to Borough Grove Clinic.
The Minister confirmed last month that the decisions made by the Health Board in January of this year were to be implemented and we are very keen to work closely with local people to take forward the plans to develop new services and facilities in Flint.
The health board is working hard to make sure there is a smooth transition of all clinics with minimum disruption for patients.
The spokesperson added: “We would like to reassure patients that the health clinic is a safe place to deliver our services. In the long term these services will be provided from a more modern Primary Healthcare Resource Centre.
"As of Monday, the phlebotomy, counselling and outpatient clinics previously provided from the hospital will be provided from the Borough Grove clinic building.
"On Monday 2nd September, GP Minor Surgery services will also transfer from the hospital to the clinic, following an upgrade of the current facilities.”
