Face masks and social distancing: Due to the rising prevalence of COVID-19 in our communities, we strongly encourage healthcare staff and visitors to wear a face covering in all of our settings, particularly in clinical areas and those with high footfall. Please exercise a common-sense approach and personal responsibility to help us reduce the impact of COVID-19 on our patients, workforce and services. In addition to wearing a face covering, it is important to continue to maintain social distancing where possible. Thank you for your continued support and co-operation at this time. We continue to regularly review our advice based on prevalence in our communities and our hospitals.
We work in partnership with other specialist agencies and neighbouring health boards to improve the care patients receive.
This means that more than one team - such as psychological therapies; community mental health teams; assertive outreach staff, crisis resolution and primary health care liaison services/gateway workers teams - work together to develop individualised care and treatment plans.
Pregnant women and new mothers are offered care and treatment from our perinatal service.
We have assessment and admission wards at Cefn Coed, Neath Port Talbot, Tonna and Ystradgynlais Community hospitals.
We also work very closely with custody and prison staff. The prison in-reach mental health team are based at HMPs Parc and Swansea and there is an in-reach team working with police custody staff.
