Aneurin Bevan University Health Board are still here for you when you need us

Aneurin Bevan University Health Board are urging the public to use Emergency Departments, should they need to visit. Some people have waited too long to attend, which has caused more harm than good with regards to their health.

The Emergency Departments across Gwent have seen a dramatic decrease in admissions since the start of lockdown during the COVID-19 pandemic. All hospitals within the Health Board have taken appropriate precautions and measures to ensure that our hospitals are clean and that you can be treated safely.

Remember, if you have an emergency such as:

  • severe breathing difficulties,
  • severe pain or bleeding,
  • chest pain or a suspected stroke

you should attend your Emergency Department for treatment, or call 999 for assistance.

Dr Tim Rogerson, Clinical Director and Consultant in Emergency Medicine at Aneurin Bevan University Health Board, said:

“We want the public to keep up the good work and continue to keep themselves safe. Some people have waited too long to attend, which has caused more harm than good with regards to their health.

“Should they need us, we are still here for them. Safety is our number one priority, should you need to visit an emergency department. We are taking all measures to clean public spaces keeping you safe whilst in our care.”
