Our aim is to provide safe, high quality care and deliver as much of this at home, or as close to home, as possible. As a Health Board, we aim to improve the health and wellbeing of the population we serve, reduce health inequalities, and ensure the sustainability of our NHS healthcare system.
It isn't always easy to know where you should go if you are unwell or injured and need urgent medical attention.
If you or a loved one find that you are urgently unwell and are unsure where to go, contact 111 first for help and advice.
Call 111 or visit the online symptom checker.
Our Enhanced Local General Hospitals- the Royal Gwent Hospital, Nevill Hall Hospital and Ysbyty Ystrad Fawr- all continue to play an important role in our new model of healthcare, although aspects of what they deliver may have changed.
These Enhanced Local General Hospitals have been repurposed to treat less critical illnesses and minor injuries requiring Hospital care. They each feature a 24/7 Minor Injury Unit, Medical Assessment Unit, Diagnostic Services, Maternity Services, Surgical Procedures and Outpatient Clinics.
