Cardiff is Wales’s chief commercial centre, the base for most national cultural and sporting institutions, the Welsh national media, and the seat of the National Assembly for Wales. It was made a city in 1905, and proclaimed the capital of Wales in 1955. Since the 1980s, Cardiff has seen significant development. A new waterfront area at Cardiff Bay contains the Senedd building, home to the Welsh Assembly and the Wales Millennium Centre arts complex. Current developments include the continuation of the redevelopment of the Cardiff Bay and city centre areas with projects such as the Cardiff International Sports Village, a BBC drama village, and a new business district in the city centre.

Cardiff was visited in 1968, hosted by Mr and Mrs Hilary Wade for this fourth triennial meeting. Cases were presented at Cardiff Royal Infirmary, followed by unusual urological malignancies and dissertations on thyroid and parathyroid disease. The next day (Saturday) short symposia were held on gastric surgery and then on breast cancer, chaired by Professor Forrest. It was felt that the Welsh National School of Medicine had got off to a flying start.

We are scheduled to Visit Cardiff In September 2018 by invitation from TSS Member Rachel Hargest
