About this video

Compassion 'has to be our number one priority' says Hiro Tanaka, a consultant orthopaedic surgeon at Aneurin Bevan University Health Board and one of our GenerationQ fellows.

We spoke to him about the value he places on compassion in delivering care, and also spoke to a range of staff members from the hospital about what compassion means to them and how they incorporate it in their day to day work. We also hear from some patients about the difference that compassionate care has made to them during their time in hospital.
