Department Profile

In their own words –

“University Hospital of Wales (UHW) is a major 1000-bed hospital in the Heath district of Cardiff. The hospital is the third largest University Hospital in the UK and the largest hospital in Wales. UHW is a teaching hospital of Cardiff University School of Medicine and in close collaboration with the University and Deanery we support training and development at all levels from undergraduates through to CPD for consultants.

Cardiff and Vale University Health Board provides a wide range of services to the local population and also delivers specialist services in neurosurgery, cardiothoracic surgery, interventional radiology and paediatric critical care to some parts of South Wales. To support these services the Emergency Unit has recently undergone refurbishment to extend its resuscitation room. There are currently seven resuscitation bays with one dedicated paediatric bay.

Research is also encouraged and supported by our Professor in Emergency Medicine with excellent international links”
