Jamie Roberts makes incredible gesture to NHS staff

Qualified Doctor and Wales legend Jamie Roberts has made a stunning gesture to NHS staff in Cardiff.

He owns a two-bed flat in Pontcanna, Cardiff which is currently not occupied and has offered the property to NHS staff who may need to use it.

The flat is just a short drive away from the University Hospital of Wales, one of the largest and busiest hospitals in Wales.

“I’ve had a few AirBnB cancellations and the flat is free for the next three weeks,” Roberts told WalesOnline.

“I understand some frontline NHS staff need to self-isolate between work and their families.

“So instead of the flat staying empty, if it can help any of the staff achieve this in any way and make things easier, then I would love to help.”
