Morriston Hospital's £6.6m cardiac unit extension unveiled

A £6.6m extension to a Swansea hospital's cardiac intensive care unit has been unveiled.

Work has been ongoing at Morriston Hospital since September with the aim of keeping surgery waiting times down.

Abertawe Bro Morgannwg University Health Board said one of the factors behind longer waiting times in the past had been a lack of beds for people after surgery.

The extension will add four more critical care beds, taking the total to 12.

BBC Wales' Ben Price took a tour of the new facilities.
