Care for Minor Injuries is provided by Nevill Hall Hospital's Minor Injury Unit, which is run by our Emergency Nurse Practitioners.  Emergency Nurse Practitioners are experienced Clinical Professionals who specialise in the management of Minor Injuries. 

They will be able to treat you if you have a broken bone, a sprain, bruise, wound, small burn, bite, or a minor eye or head injury and many other injuries. This service will be available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

The Grange University Hospital provides specialist services for our most seriously ill patients or those with significant injuries, and it is the designated trauma unit for Gwent. It is likely that if you need to be cared for at The Grange University Hospital, you will be directed there by a Healthcare Professional or taken there after calling 999.

What is a Medical Assessment Unit?
If you have a medical emergency or severe illness that needs to be diagnosed then you will be referred to one of our Medical Assessment Units. Doctors working in these facilities will run tests and assess you before deciding on the best course of treatment for you. You can’t walk into a Medical Assessment Unit – you need to be referred by your GP, a Paramedic, or another Medical Professional.

Most of our patients who are referred to a Medical Assessment Unit go home on the same day. Those that need admission to Hospital for further care will be moved to one of our Wards. Some patients may move to a different Hospital to receive the care they need.


Caring for Children 

Nevill Hall Hospital has a dedicated Outpatients Department for Children, which provides Clinic appointments with a play area. Our Specialist Centre caring for children with disabilities is also situated at Nevill Hall Hospital.

Emergency care for children under one year old takes place at The Grange University Hospital. Children over one year old should still attend Nevill Hall for Minor Injuries.

Maternity Services 

Nevill Hall Hospital offers a midwifery-led birthing unit for routine deliveries. New mothers will have single en-suite delivery and aftercare rooms and have the option of using water birth facilities.
 
For care before and after birth, it provides Antenatal and Postnatal Clinics led by Consultants and Midwives.

Please be aware that the lack of car parking capacity is a fundamental problem at Nevill Hall Hospital and regrettably, a vacant parking space cannot be guaranteed for anyone visiting the site. We are currently seeking a solution to this problem to try and relieve the pressures. In the meantime, we recommend where practicable, patients be driven or accompanied when attending for an appointment; the drop off point near the main entrance can be utilised for patients to alight prior to drivers finding a parking space.  Alternatively the public transport facility which drives in and out of the site for the convenience of patients and visitors, can be utilised.


Blue Badge parking is available is available adjacent to Accident and Emergency, and in the main hospital car park.

Please do not park in the roadway, or on double yellow lines.
 
Parking at Nevill Hall Hospital is free.
