Cycle to Work Scheme

Man cycling in a park

Cardiff and Vale UHB is delighted to be running the Cycle to Work scheme as part of the Government’s Green Travel Plan, to encourage employees to ride a bicycle to work and aid in reducing congestion and environmental pollution.

Order 'windows', when staff are able to order a bike, open at regular intervals during the year.

If any member of staff would like their details added to the database of interested parties, they should contact Colin McMillan, Head of Transport and Sustainable Travel, colin.mcmillan@wales.nhs.uk, who will contact them direct once the next window is open.
