Children's Hospital for Wales gets phase two go ahead


A second £63.8m phase of the Children's Hospital for Wales in Cardiff has finally been given the go-ahead.

The Welsh government has pledged funding for new wards, critical care facilities and four operating theatres.

The four-ward hospital opened at Heath in 2005 but funding issues have had to be resolved before further expansion could be agreed.

Health correspondent Hywel Griffith reports.
