It combines A&E with radiology and x-ray facilities.

The new building is three times the size of the old A&E facilities.

It's hoped the new facilities, which have taken more than 18 months to build, will cut hospital waiting times.

“We are really pleased with the new building and that it now brings together many of the services for Urgent and Emergency Care in Wolverhampton under one roof. It’s a fantastic addition to the facilities at New Cross and will really improve the working experience for our staff and the experience for our patients.”
