Coronavirus. Public Health Wales response to outbreak in Wuhan, China
Swansea Bay University Health Board (formerly ABMU) was created on April 1, 2019 after responsibility for providing healthcare services in the Bridgend County Borough Council area passed from ABMU to the new Cwm Taf Morgannwg University Health Board.
Swansea Bay UHB covers a population of around 390,000 in the Neath Port Talbot and Swansea areas and we have a budget of around £1bn. The health board employs approximately 12,500 staff.
We also have a community hospital and primary care resource centres providing clinical services outside the main hospitals.
We have 49 GP practices in our health board area, 72 dental practices including orthodontists, 31 optometry practices and 92 community pharmacies.
Mental health and learning disabilities services are provided both in hospital and community settings.
The Welsh Centre for Burns and Plastic Surgery at Morriston Hospital covers not only south and mid Wales, but the south west of England. Morriston also delivers one of two cardiac surgery services in Wales.
Other specialist services provided by the health board included cleft lip and palate, renal, fertility and bariatric (obesity).
Forensic mental health services are provided to a wider community which extends across the whole of South Wales.
The health board is part of A Regional Collaboration for Health (ARCH), which is a partnership with Hywel Dda University Health Board and Swansea University.
ARCH is a unique collaboration project aimed at improving the health, wealth and wellbeing of south west Wales.
