First Minister of Wales Carwyn Jones has today officially opened the new £60 million Outpatient Department at Morriston Hospital in Swansea.
Thursday 19 November 2015

This department, that has received £60m of Welsh Government capital investment, is the largest construction project at Morriston Hospital. It provides a new main entrance to the hospital, with a retail area, an Integrated Education centre and a wide range of accommodation to support other outpatient services.

Services transferred into the new building include adult and paediatric outpatients, fracture clinic, radiology, pre-assessment clinics, head and neck services, cleft lip and palate, a maxillofacial lab, phlebotomy, lung function, endoscopy suites and a renal dialysis unit.

The integrated Education Unit will act as ‘hub’ for learning and professional development of staff and students. It will be equipped with a clinical skills lab, a dental lab and a ward environment to support student training.

First Minister Carwyn Jones said:

“We want to see health services in Wales delivered in modern, first class facilities. This magnificent new building is an exceptional example of our ambitions and just one of the projects delivered to modernise Morriston Hospital through Health Vision Swansea.

“I’m sure that this fantastic development will be welcomed and valued by everyone using its services and I’m honoured to formally open the new Outpatient Department at Morriston Hospital.”
