In recent weeks, we have seen an increase in patients with illnesses (not injuries) attending our Minor Injury Units - this means they have had to be redirected, which is frustrating and potentially dangerous for them.
Our Minor Injury Units at the Royal Gwent Hospital (Newport), Nevill Hall Hospital (Abergavenny), and Ysbyty Ystrad Fawr (Ystrad Mynach) are NOT able to treat illnesses - only injuries. Find out more about our Minor Injury Units.
If you have an illness and need urgent care this weekend, please call 111 to book an appointment with GP Out-of-Hours. If you have a less serious illness, please consider you can visit your local pharmacist or check your symptoms online.
