The Health Secretary, Vaughan Gething, has announced NHS Wales is set to receive £16.3m investment this year.
The money will be used to provide new, high-tech diagnostic imaging equipment, such as MRI, CT and cardiac scanning machines.
Hospitals across Wales will benefit from the money, with funding including:
- A new high tech Gamma camera technology, used to detect radiation, for the University Hospital of Wales and University Hospital Llandough
- The installation of a new MRI scanner at Ysbyty Gwynedd
- Replacement MRI and mammography rooms for Nevill Hall hospital and the Royal Gwent hospital
- Replacement MRI scanner and a new cardiac diagnostic X-ray machine for Bronglais and Prince Phillip Hospital
- Replacement CT scanner for Ysbyty Glan Clwyd
As part of next year's draft Budget, a further £15m has been allocated for diagnostic equipment for the next financial year.
