Props have been placed in the corridors – could props be put in wards to keep the wards open?

Where areas that require props are identified, the health board needs to place the props in specific locations, meaning that we cannot continue to work in the areas. 

As can be seen from the architect drawing of ward 7 and proposed prop locations below, the props would need to go through beds in wards, which is not possible. Therefore, we need to move patients out of impacted wards while the repair work is undertaken.
