Rob Thomas says “It is a genuine privilege to join such a fantastic team in Cardiff. The Vale Hospital enjoys a wonderful location near the Vale Hotel, a venue that is both tranquil and easily accessible from the M4. This provides a peaceful and comfortable setting for our patients having more major surgery. Our Cardiff Bay Hospital provides a convenient location for the majority of our diagnostics and day case surgery for treatments like cataracts and endoscopy”.
Rob went on to comment on the valuable role that Nuffield Health plays in terms of adding additional choice for patients and their families, saying, “Healthcare is a profoundly personal issue for us all. Anyone deciding they want treatment at Nuffield Health Cardiff and Vale Hospitals can be assured they will be treated promptly with clinical excellence. We provide the very best care in first class and peaceful surroundings with world class staff and equipment. I look forward to working closely with consultant colleagues and the wider team here to develop even further the range of services we offer.”
