The Theatres Department provides care for children and adult patients undergoing surgery.  We support surgery and anaesthesia for emergencies, trauma and orthopaedics, cardio-thoracic, neurosurgery gynaecology and many other specialities.

In total there are 12 theatres at the University Hospital of Wales and 10 at the University Hospital Llandough which includes two day surgery theatres.  

We offer the highest quality care in a safe and welcoming environment for patients, their relatives or carers.  We place the patient at the centre of everything we do because we understand that undergoing surgery can be a difficult and stressful experience.


The two sites provide support and facilities for a vast range of specialities:
