Plans to replace University Hospital of Wales in Cardiff with new hospital are revealed

There are plans to replace Wales’ largest hospital by 2030 as part of a shake-up of health services.

NHS bosses want to create a new hospital in Cardiff to replace University Hospital of Wales (UHW) and hope this would be open by 2030.

UHW, which has more than 1,000 beds, was built in 1971 and is “no longer fit for purpose” according to Cardiff and Vale University Health Board.

Plans for the new hospital are at an early stage and it has not yet been decided whether the new facility will stay on its current site or be built elsewhere. There are also currently no details on how much it would cost.

The health board is appointing a “senior member of staff” to work on plans to redevelop the hospital and expects to have a business case in place by 2026.
