A Station For Morriston Hospital

Morriston Hospital is in Swansea or to be more precise it appears to be up the hill and a fair way from Swansea station. I could probably just walk it.

It would appear that there are plans to reopen Cockett station, which would only be ten minutes by train from the main station and close enough  to Morriston Hospital for a shuttle bus.

It would also mean that to get between the Hospital and East Wales, you wouldn’t have to go into Swansea and change trains.

It looks like the Welsh are finally getting access to the hospital acceptable, but so many hospitals don’t have a decent transport connection.

At too many places in the UK, the only reliable way to get from the main station to the local hospital is by hiring a taxi.

Is that acceptable?
