HistoryEdit

The facility was officially opened by the former Speaker of the House of Commons, Lord Tonypandy, after which it is named, in 1991.[1] The new facility was built on the site of a former coal mine.[2] In 2018 three wards were closed to facilitate the creation of a health and well-being centre.[3]
