One of Sophie's priorities if elected will be to secure Phase 2 of the Children's Hospital at UHW. Sophie has spent time in the old ward with all three of her children and knows how much Phase 1 of the new hospital was needed. Sophie knows how stressful and worrying it can be when your children are ill, but the new accommodation in the new Children's Hospital is a lot more comfortable for children and their families.
Sophie said "Phase 2 of the hospital will house more wards, a new children's outpatient centre and new children-only operating theatres. It will be a centre of excellence for children. A business case has been put together by the Trust which is being considered by Brian Gibbons, the Minister for Health. I have met with paediatricians from UHW and am giving my full support to the proposals. If elected, I will make the development of the hospital a top priority. The children of Wales deserve the best."
