A new £38m urgent care and emergency centre has opened at a West Midlands hospital.

The building, at New Cross Hospital in Wolverhampton combines Accident and Emergency with the radiology and X-ray department and is three times the size of the previous A&E building.

The Royal Wolverhampton NHS Trust said it brings all urgent care needs under one roof.

A spokesman said the old area was cramped and built for fewer patients.
