New Diagnostics Hub Opened

John Weaver Contractors have successfully completed a new Diagnostics Hub which has been opened at the Royal Glamorgan Hospital, as part of its vision to expand high quality imaging capacity covering the region.

The Hub, officially opened by Vaughan Gething, Cabinet Secretary for Health and Social Services, comprises of two CT scanners and two MRI scanners, enabling Cwm Taf University Health Board to further increase the diagnostic capacity for its own population and the surrounding region.

The Hub includes a new purpose built CT suite and a new recovery room at Royal Glamorgan Hospital, focused on optimising patient flow and providing the best possible patient experience.

Jennifer Parker, Project Manager for this scheme for John Weaver, is proud to be able to deliver this project for Cwm Taf University Health Board and thanks all of her team for their efforts and hard work for the successful handover of the project.

Vaughan Gething, Cabinet Secretary for Health and Social Services said:

I’m very pleased to be unveiling this new state of the art Diagnostic Hub at Royal Glamorgan Hospital. Our investment of nearly £6m means that this hospital will now play a significant role in diagnostics, supporting the wider network of hospitals within the South Wales area.

“The Hub is a great example of investment in action, and will not only benefit the people within Cwm Taf, but across the whole of South Wales.

“I’m committed to the development of a strong and sound base for imaging services across Wales, and I look forward to seeing the benefits that this facility will provide this community and the region as a whole.”
