£33m for new Cardiff and Vale COVID-19 facility

Health Minister Vaughan Gething has announced £33m funding for a new facility for the Cardiff and Vale Health Board to manage any potential increase in COVID-19 cases this winter.<img class="alignright wp-image-133949 size-large" src="” alt=”Funding” width=”360″ height=”240″ />

The new facility, providing 400 extra beds, will be built next to the University Hospital of Wales in Cardiff following the decommissioning of the Dragon’s Heart hospital at the Principality Stadium.

Mr Gething said:

“This investment will help Cardiff and Vale University Health Board manage any potential increase in admissions caused by COVID-19 in what is likely to be a challenging winter for health and social care services.

We know the winter can present greater difficulty for NHS staff, and with the virus more likely to spread in colder conditions we need to ensure we have the bed capacity to cope with increased demand.

Tomorrow I will be announcing further actions to be taken across health and social care through the publication of a Winter Protection Plan, and later this month I will be outlining extra funding for other Health Boards to ensure we retain enough bed capacity throughout the rest of Wales.”
