New ambulance station opens in Cardiff

Welsh minister for health and social services, Eluned Morgan has officially opened the Welsh Ambulance's new station in Cardiff.

The £8 million station will be the home of both emergency and non-emergency crews, as well as the Cycle Response Unit.

The new facility will also house fleet assistants who will clean and restock vehicles.

The station has electric vehicle charging points, cycle storage, bat boxes and a rainwater harvesting system, the water from which is used for cleaning the vehicles.

The new station is part of a programme of work aimed to modernise the Welsh Ambulance Service's estate.

Eluned Morgan said: "I am delighted to officially open Cardiff’s new ambulance station, providing crews with the base they deserve. The state-of-the art facilities will increase the time crews can spend with sick or injured people, as well as excellent training facilities for new and current staff.

"Alongside the £3m we’re investing to recruit around 100 additional frontline staff and introduce a new ‘Cymru High Acuity Response Unit’ (CHARU) service, our new ambulance infrastructure will provide a range of benefits to our ambulance staff and the communities they serve."
