Covid: Working in Royal Glamorgan Hospital’s A&E a ‘marathon’


An A&E doctor working in the Welsh region currently hardest hit by Covid deaths says it feels like a marathon.

To date Cwm Taf Morgannwg health board, which runs Royal Glamorgan Hospital, has reported 1,091 deaths of patients with coronavirus – more than any other health board in Wales.

BBC Wales was granted access to the hospital’s A&E department in Llantrisant, Rhondda Cynon Taf.

Senior doctor Amanda Farrow said the hospital faced “unrelenting” pressure last Saturday.
