Work to begin on £3m cancer day unit at Bronglais Hospital

  • 2nd April 2024

Hywel Dda University Health Board has announced that building work on a new chemotherapy day unit (CDU) at Bronglais Hospital will start next month.

The project will deliver significant enhancements in care and experience for Hywel Dda patients.

Peter Skitt, Hywel Dda’s Ceredigion county director and project director for the development of the new unit, said: “I’m delighted that we will soon realise our ambition for Bronglais Hospital to have a fit-for-purpose unit for cancer patients.

“We have overcome a short delay, and with support from our staff, the Hywel Dda Health Charities, our board members, and our building contractor, building work will soon start.

“I expect the new £3m unit to be ready to welcome its first patients next year.”

The budget for the development has been under pressure because of rapidly-rising material costs.

However, with careful planning and budgeting, the health board is now on track to nearly double the floor space available for treatment and staff areas to 600sq m.

Skitt said: “The project will remodel part of the existing floor area and repurpose accommodation to ensure it meets the needs of staff and patients to deliver a modern and welcoming facility.”
