Children moved back into Children’s Hospital of Wales after flooding closure

A number of patients have move back into the Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospital for Wales after it was closed due to flooding.

The hospital was closed on Monday because of flooding caused by torrential rain.

Eighteen children were moved to other child health areas of the main University Hospital of Wales site and staff were able to maintain paediatric emergency and elective services.

A spokesperson for the Cardiff and Vale University Health Board said some children are due to move back into the lower floors of the Children’s Hospital this morning (THURS).

Work to determine the exact cause and extent of the damage to the higher floors, where water has been found in the electrical trunking systems and light fittings, has been taking place over the last few days.

Patients and their families are advised to continue attending the hospital as normal unless told otherwise.

Patients have moved back into the Ocean and Land wards at the hospital today while patients on the Sky ward are due to return tomorrow.

Cardiff and Vale University Health Board said patients from the Space ward on the top floor of the building will move back next week.

The three-storey building, which opened in 2005, was designed with the Ocean ward on the ground floor, Land on the first floor, Sky on the second floor and Space on the third floor.

Investigation work into the cause of the damage is still continuing.
