Cardiff County Council’s Planning Committee has approved Velindre NHS Trust’s outline planning application for a new Velindre Cancer Centre.
Earlier this afternoon (Wednesday, December 13th) Cardiff County Council’s Planning Committee met to consider Velindre NHS Trust’s outline planning application to build a new Cancer Centre in Whitchurch, Cardiff.
Steve Ham, Chief Executive of Velindre NHS Trust said: “The approval of our outline planning application is a significant milestone for the population we serve across South East Wales.
“Although it has served us and our patients well for more than 60 years; our current Cancer Centre is no longer fit for purpose. More and more people across South East Wales require cancer treatment and our care. Because of that continued increase in demand for our services, we must do things differently.
“As we move into this next phase, we’re looking forward to continuing to work with our patients and our local community to ensure the new Velindre Cancer Centre and its location can benefit everyone.”
