We're building your new Velindre Cancer CentreĀ 

Velindre Cancer Centre has successfully run cancer services since our establishment in the 1960s. Our dedicated staff treat and care for thousands of patients from across south east Wales every single year.

But the number of people referred to us with cancer grows every year, and the more than 68-year-old current cancer centre does not have the facilities or space necessary to meet the future needs of our patients and staff. 

Our new cancer centre is critical in safeguarding the provision of crucial treatment and care for the 1.5 million people of south Wales over the coming decades and is critical to keep pace with the increasing demand.

We’re not giving every patient the best possible service joined up close to home wherever they live. So, across the system, whatever our roles and wherever we are based, we're coming together to improve cancer services.

We are working to build a new Velindre Cancer Centre with a satellite radiotherapy centre in Abergavenny. We are working to make the most of the opportunities digital technology brings. And we need to work differently.

Construction of the new Velindre Cancer Centre is underway and we are scheduled to open in Spring 2027.
