CLOSURE OF ROOKWOOD HOSPITAL

Rookwood Hospital in which the south Wales centre is located is earmarked for closure. The staff in the south Wales centre although uncertain of their future location have been assured that the service will continue to be funded by the Welsh Government and it appears that at present plans are for the service to be re located to the physiotherapy gym that is located on the present Rookwood site.
