When We Are Closed

If you need to contact a doctor when the surgery is closed, at night, at weekends or bank holidays, please telephone NHS Direct on 111. This is the telephone number for the emergency treatment centre. You will not see your regular GP at this centre.

Out-of-hours services are generally busy so please think carefully before asking to see a doctor and only do so if you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.

In a genuine emergency, you should call 999. Chest pains and/or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.

Accident & Emergency

There is a large Accident & Emergency Department at Morriston Hospital (click here), which is open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year for serious and life-threatening conditions that need immediate medical attention, including breathing difficulties, persistent severe chest pain, heavy blood loss, severe burns, loss of consciousness, suspected stroke and deep wounds.

There is a Minor Injury Unit at Neath Port Talbot Hospital (click here), open between 7.30am-11.00pm, 7 days a week, 365 days a year for adults and children over the age of one year. Children under one year should be taken to the nearest Emergency Department.  Minor injuries include cuts and minor burns, sprain and strains, broken bones, dislocation of the shoulder, fingers and toes, head and facial injuries with no loss of consciousness and the patient is not taking blood thinning medication, neck injuries, back injuries, foreign bodies to eyes, ear and nose, non-penetrating eye and ear injuries, rib injuries, bites, insect bites and assault.  Unfortunately, the unit cannot treat colds, coughs, sore throats, earache, rashes and temperatures, urinary tract infections, cystitis or catheter problems, dental problems and injury to stomach/abdomen, chest pain, breathing problems, stroke, painful limbs, skin complaints and wounds that have not been caused during an accident.

Before attending A&E, we would ask you to consider whether your problem could more appropriately be dealt with by your GP, local Pharmacy via the minor ailments scheme or the Out of Hours Service outside of surgery opening times.
