The Staff Lottery supports staff across Cardiff and Vale by creating new winners every month. It also enables staff to apply for funding from the Staff Lottery Bids Panel, which has awarded grants of over £1.5 million to support numerous projects across the UHB which benefit, patients, staff and visitors. 

The Staff Lottery Bids Panel recently supported a project to provide extra seating in the CRI corridor

The Staff Lottery Bids Panel were delighted to support a bid to install three fold-up seats along the long corridor of Cardiff Royal Infirmary, in an aim to improve the patient, staff and visitor experience.

The long corridor running through Cardiff Royal Infirmary previously didn’t have any place to rest for individuals who are vulnerable, elderly, or who have respiratory and mobility conditions. The addition of the seats means that the patients, staff, and visitors are able to take rest breaks whilst heading to their appointments, making the corridor a safer and kinder environment for those who aren’t able to remain mobile for extended periods of time.
