Due to ongoing staffing pressures we (Swansea Bay University Health Board) have made the difficult decision to temporarily reduce the opening hours of the Minor Injury Unit at Neath Port Talbot Hospital.
It is now available from 8am until 9pm, seven days a week, for a period of nine months, rather than the previous times of 7.30am-11pm.
We will have staff available around the MIU area who can redirect anyone turning up between 9pm and 11pm.
Anyone needing urgent attention that cannot wait until the following day should use 111 or, if it is serious enough, the Emergency Department at Morriston Hospital.
Please find attached a copy of the Health Board’s statement regarding the Minor Injuries Unit at Neath Port Talbot Hospital.
