Swansea Bay University Health Board is excited to announce the opening of a £6.1million Elective Surgery Hub in South West Wales, which went operational in June 2023. Based at Neath Port Talbot Hospital (NPTH), the service will look to quickly establish itself as a centre of excellence for elective orthopaedic and spinal surgery and a key location for urology surgery. 

A picture of surgeon Paul Williams Mr Paul Williams (Clinical Adviser) explained: “The move by Swansea Bay UHB towards creating Elective Surgical hubs is in accord with the recommendations of the Royal College of Surgeons and Get it Right First Time (GiRFT). Our aspiration is to develop efficient and productive centres where staff are proud to work, and which ensure patients receive the best possible standard of care.

“In order to achieve this, we will require a dedicated and enthusiastic workforce committed to these central ideals; we recognise that employees will need to be fully supported and integrated with training and professional development promoted. Our aim is to create centres of excellence aligned to the developing GiRFT accreditation criteria.”
