Major trauma centre in Cardiff gets green light

April 13, 2018 by  

Cardiff is set to be the home of the very first centre for major trauma in the whole of Wales, following the news that six health boards have approved the plan.

The new centre will be located within the city’s University Hospital of Wales and will serve as the focal point of a wider network dedicated to major trauma injuries, which covers mid and south Wales. The next stage in the process will be for the Government of Wales to hear the business case for the plan.

Cardiff had to compete against Swansea to be the chosen location for the centre, but was selected by the health boards during individual meetings. Swansea will become home to one of the units that will support the main one.

The final vote in favour of the Welsh capital came from the ABMU health board, which voted in the majority for it. According to BBC News Wales, the medical director of Hywel Dda, Dr Phil Kloer, stated that:

“I will be working closely with colleagues across Wales on implementation and my focus will be on ensuring our rural population here in west Wales has access to these services.”

Hospitals like this often turn to stationery printers based local area and are able to provide them with all of the admin equipment they need.
