The Welsh Rugby Teams base is being transformed into a Field Hospital to help deal with Coronavirus #PositiveCoronavirusNews

Pictures show dramatic transformation of Welsh rugby team’s base into field hospital

Work on the WRU’s National Centre of Excellence started just a few days ago

These are the pictures that show how the Welsh rugby team’s base is rapidly being transformed into a field hospital to deal with the coronavirus outbreak.

Work started on turning the Welsh rugby team’s inside training pitches a few days ago.

The makeshift hospital at the Vale Resort will provide 290 additional beds as the numbers of people with COVID19 increases.

Speaking about the makeshift field hospital, Dr Sharon Hopkins, CEO for Cwm Taf Morgannwg UHB, said: “We are very grateful to everyone who has supported the response to the challenge of COVID19. The response continues to be amazing.

“The WRU and Leekes have kindly let us use their facilities, which is greatly welcomed as rapid work takes place to increase available staff, beds and equipment. The support of the military and local authorities is just so vital in transforming the spaces and making the changes happen.

“The field hospitals will be vitally important in providing care to patients and communities in the coming weeks and months. It is an inspiring example of organisations working collaboratively to provide urgent new environments to respond to COVID19.

“As this work progresses, some patients will receive their care in a different location to their usual hospital to reduce the level of risk of exposure to COVID19. We remain very grateful to our patients and wider community for their support and understanding at this time.”

Stephen Leeke, Managing Director of the Vale Resort, said: “As a proud Welsh family business, and key player in the local community, we are really keen to step up to the plate and do what we can to assist Cwm Taf Morgannwg UHB in providing additional capacity during this time of national crisis.

“This has included working with the WRU to allow 290 additional beds to be set up our indoor training arena.

The huge Principality Stadium event still scheduled to go ahead next month despite the venue being turned into a hospital

“Everybody – from businesses to individuals – has a responsibility to play their part in the fight against the Covid-19 pandemic, and to support the NHS, who is doing an incredible job under enormous pressure and extremely difficult circumstances.”

Martyn Phillips, WRU Group CEO, said: “We’ve worked with Leekes in partnership for many years at the National Centre of Excellence. We’re more than happy for the facilities there to be used by the Health Board at this challenging time and to support the wider communities of Wales.”

Last week, the WRU have also made the Principality Stadium available to be turned into a 2,000-bed field hospital – with work currently ongoing to complete that transformation.
