Found this in the Argus. I knew there were discussions on this some time ago - perhaps we’re getting a step closer........

A PROPOSED health and wellbeing 'super-surgery' for Tredegar is set to be either a new development on the town's hospital site, or a major upgrade and refurbishment of existing facilities.

A feasibility study has compared both options, with the costs estimated at around £9.5 million for the new-build, and £9.5-11.5m for the refurbishment option.

Both are substantially above the allocated Welsh Government budget of £5m for the project, which received funding approval last autumn.

But an update on the project prepared for board members of Aneurin Bevan University Health Board, states that the Welsh Government has been "formally advised of the capital cost implications", and approval has been given for the development of an outline business case which will provide more details for both options.

Using the Tredegar Hospital site would continue a healthcare link there stretching back more than 100 years.

Tredegar Hospital opened in 1904 and was run by the town's Medical Aid Society, a key inspiration for Aneurin Bevan when he established the NHS in 1948.

It became an NHS hospital then, but closed eight years ago, when services were transferred to the then newly-opened Ysbyty Aneurin Bevan in Ebbw Vale. It is currently boarded up.

The Tredegar health and wellbeing centre is one of two primary care projects in Gwent - the other is for east Newport - to be given priority last autumn by the health board following a review of its primary care estate.
