Important announcement regarding MIU:

Due to ongoing staffing pressures we 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 on the hospital site 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.

The Minor Injury Unit is an important part of Swansea Bay’s urgent and emergency care services. We have no intention of making this a permanent change and we are recruiting additional staff.

We are working closely with Llais, the independent organisation which represents the views of health and social care service users and patients across Wales.

Previously, we have had to close the MIU early at short notice on several occasions. This caused difficulties for patients who turned up expecting to be seen only to have to go to Morriston Hospital instead.

On average, five patients a day attended the MIU between 9pm and 11pm. Closing temporarily at 9pm allows us to provide a sustainable service, with the least impact on patients.

We hope you will understand the reasons for the change. Be assured we are doing all we can to resolve the situation as quickly as possible.

Please note the MIU is for minor injuries only and cannot treat serious illnesses or serious injuries. It cannot deal with patients with an illness, suspected heart attack, chest pains or stroke.
