Stories from Ty Olwen

Welcome to our newest staff member at Ty Olwen. Dawn Lewis joins us from the chemotherapy team at Singleton Hospital. This is not her first time at Ty Olwen as she did part of her training with us some six years ago and always wanted to return. Welcome!

Congratulations to Karren Roberts on her promotion to Ward Sister. Karren has been a most ardent supporter and fundraiser for Ty Olwen for many years. It was a pleasure to see her at a recent Ty Olwen Trust meeting.

Wishing Rachel Tressider all the best as she leaves Ty Olwen to join the hospital team. We know she will be a great asset to them and they will receive the benefit of the knowledge gained by her at Ty Olwen.

It was great to meet one of our patients this week who was in Ty Olwen for a few nights for some treatment, and to meet her lovely ‘girls’ – daughters Darcie and Maddi, niece Alex and one of there friends Atlanta. Three of the girls had run the Swansea 10K (although Maddi looked after Mum and her wheelchair pushing her around to watch and support them) and raised a staggering £1600. “Having seen first hand the amazing care and support they offer to their patients, we really wanted to give something back to this place”













 “a patient’s dog came by to visit them today to give a hug, the dog stopped to give all the staff a hello too”
