We're making progress with the business case we're developing to transform cancer services in south east Wales.

We held a large scale workshop in mid January 2016, where patients, clinicians, staff and representatives from our health board and voluntary sector partners met to check on progress.
A summary of what we’re proposing:

  • The patient at the hub of a new collaborative, 24/7  cancer service, being treated as close to home as possible
  • A new Velindre Cancer Centre to treat complex cancers and non surgical cases in the local Cardiff area
  • A new satellite radiotherapy centre to the east of Cardiff
  • More outreach clinics offering excellent cancer treatments,  to add to our existing community services, and to be called Velindre@ facilities
  • A Centre for Learning to promote excellence in cancer care
