Aneurin Bevan University Health Board has developed General Surgery services to meet the needs of the local population and is part of the Scheduled Care Division.
Our services are based at three main sites, Royal Gwent Hospital, Nevill Hall Hospital and Ysbyty Ystrad Fawr. We also have outreach clinics that serve our community in County Hospital, Ysbyty Aneurin Bevan and Chepstow Community Hospital. Our service is managed through the Directorate of General Surgery led by a Clinical Director who is supported by a Senior Directorate Management Team.
General Surgery provides a comprehensive range of in-patient, out-patient and emergency services. General Surgery services are continuously developing, with more minor procedures being performed in the out-patient department and many operations performed as day cases. Nurse practitioners have key roles, working closely with the consultants.
General Surgery has 4 sub-specialities. These are Lower Gastrointestinal (LGI), Upper Gastrointestinal (UGI), Vascular and Breast.
All of our sub-specialities deliver a dedicated service to all patients referred in whether from their GP, other clinicians or other external sources.
The Directorate is also supported by Advanced and Specialist Nurse Practitioners and Clinical Nurse specialists.
