Our new elective surgery hub

Our new Elective Surgery Hub opened on 15th June 2023. Work started in the autumn of 2022, with the threatre modules arriving on site just before Christmas. Since then it's been all systems go finishing off the construction work and fitting the building out. We've already built one of these theatres in Singleton Hospital, which was described as 'space age' by one of the surgeons now using it. So we were really excited to see the work at the new hub at Neath Port Talbot Hospital going sp well and delighted to see it open as scheduled in June 2023.

Here are just a few images of the work (mostly taken in March 2023).
