Orkambi event in Parliament. // Digwyddiad Orkambi yn y Senedd.

On Monday the Cystic Fibrosis Trust held an event in Parliament, lobbying the NHS and pharmaceutical firm Vertex to reach an agreement over introducing Orkambi. As part of the Welsh devolution settlement health services in Wales fall within the remit of the Welsh Government.

There has been tireless lobbying and an e-petition started by Rhian Barrance calling on the Welsh Government to “Ensure access to the cystic fibrosis medicine, Orkambi, as a matter of urgency” has reached over 5,000 signatures.

Ddydd Llun roedd yr Ymddiriedolaeth Ffeibrosis Systig wedi cynnal digwyddiad yn y Senedd, yn lobïo’r GIG a’r cwmni fferyllol Vertex i ddod i gytundeb ynghylch cyflwyno Orkambi. Fel rhan o setliad datganoli Cymru mae gwasanaethau iechyd Cymru yn perthyn i gylch gwaith Llywodraeth Cymru.

Bu lobïo diflino ac mae e-ddeiseb a ddechreuwyd gan Rhian Barrance yn galw ar Lywodraeth Cymru i “Sicrhau mynediad i’r feddyginiaeth ffeibrosis systig, Orkambi, fel mater o frys” wedi casglu dros 5,000 o lofnodion.

Remembrance Sunday:
As you all know this year was the hundredth anniversary of the end of the First World War.  I have been constantly surprised at the growing turnout for Remembrance Sunday since my election in 2010 with numbers increasing dramatically since the efforts to commemorate the First World War started back in 2014.  This year was a fitting pinnacle for those efforts and the numbers at services throughout the Constituency of Aberconwy were a testament to the way in which this anniversary has clearly touched the hearts of local people.

Sul y Cofio:
Fel y gwyddoch i gyd, eleni oedd canmlwyddiant diwedd y Rhyfel Byd Cyntaf. Ers fy ethol yn 2010, rwyf wastad wedi cael fy synnu gan y dorf gynyddol sy’n troi allan ar gyfer Sul y Cofio, ac mae’r niferoedd wedi cynyddu’n aruthrol ers yr ymdrechion i gofio’r Rhyfel Byd Cyntaf ddechrau yn 2014. Roedd eleni yn benllanw addas ar gyfer yr ymdrechion hynny ac roedd y niferoedd mewn gwasanaethau ar draws Etholaeth Aberconwy yn dyst i’r ffordd y mae’r garreg filltir hon yn amlwg wedi cyffwrdd â chalonnau pobl leol.
