Arrangements for Bank Holiday on Monday 19th September 2022

Tuesday 13th September 2022

In light of confirmation that there will be a Bank Holiday to mark the Queen’s state funeral, the Health Board is postponing all planned appointments and clinics on Monday 19th September 2022.

However, some patients may be contacted due to the urgency of their appointment to proceed if agreed with patients and the teams.

The Health Board will be in contact with all patients affected by this announcement to make alternative arrangements for their care.

GP surgeries and most community pharmacies will be closed on the day, and we will be encouraging residents to order repeat prescriptions this week.

Our urgent and emergency care services will continue on the Bank Holiday. The Minor Injury Units at Nevill Hall Hospital, Ysbyty Ystrad Fawr and the Royal Gwent Hospital will all remain open, however the Minor Injury Unit at Ysbyty Aneurin Bevan will close in line with usual bank holiday arrangements.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused by this unavoidable disruption to our services.
