The new chairs are high back with cushions and adjustable for a patients fit. The League has over 70 years raised more than £2,100,000 to buy new hospital equipment and support the wonderful work that is carried out at this hospital on a weekly basis. We are always grateful for the generous support we get from the people of Swansea and the surrounding areas when fundraising to buy this vital equipment for Morriston Hospital.
