Comprehensive design events were led by Outhentics which involved over 400 people across South East Wales including patients, clinicians from Local Health Boards, Velindre University NHS Trust, charity and third sector organisatons, the Welsh Government. The aim of these workshops was to listen to views on what each stakeholder required from current and future services; help establish a core set of design principles; and to start to design the clinical service model. These workshops helped identify the ‘why’ people wanted change and the ‘what’ they required in the future.
Further work was then undertaken to design the clinical service model in much greater detail. A series of 48 clinical workshops were facilitated by a healthcare planning organisation, Buchan Associates, which supported the design of the clinical services including what services would be delivered where and how they would be delivered. These workshops helped to identify the ‘what’ services would be delivered and ‘how’ they would be delivered.

June 2020 – autumn 2020
The new Velindre Cancer Centre and Enabling Works Outline Business Cases were approved by Welsh Government in March 2021.
There is much in these business cases that is commercially sensitive given that we are now entering into a live procurement exercise in order to secure the best partners to work with to complete the build. Therefore, we have redacted some information for this reason.
The business cases play an important role in our project journey and we will be continuing to share updates as we progress through that journey.
Accelerated Design Workshop – an engagement event involving a wide range of stakeholders that is carefully designed to involve participants in co-design, feedback, networking and shared learning.
