First Minister opens £3m Unit at Princess of Wales Hospital

On Friday 16th March, the new Delivery and Support Unit at the Princess of Wales Hospital was officially opened by First Minister Rhodri Morgan.

The £2m investment is a clear example of the Welsh Assembly Government’s commitment to modernise and improve the health service in Wales, and I know that many of my constituents will now benefit from that investment.

I would particularly like to thank those members of staff for their commitment in assisting with the design of the new unit, in which they will shortly be working.

I was also delighted that later that morning Rhodri Morgan was also able to join me on a walkabout in Bridgend town centre, including touring the Indoor Market, where he was able to see for himself the vast array of fine quality foods, goods and services there on sale.

The First Minister said,

'It was a pleasure to visit Bridgend market today - people wanted to talk about the ban on smoking in public spaces and the introduction of free prescriptions coming in April. This is what Labour is delivering for people here.”

''Earlier I opened the new Accident & Emergency unit at the Princess of Wales hospital - a £2 million project funded by the Labour Assembly Government, so local people can really see the difference record investment in health is making here. They need to remember that all of this progress would be at risk if the Tories get in on May 3rd.''
