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.
Our community drug and alcohol teams (CDATs) provide support and treatment in communities, or from our clinics and hospitals. Based at Cwmbwrla, Swansea, the team supports people struggling with drug or alcohol issues. The team has had expert training and can help with access to needle exchange services, the home detoxification programme and support from Ward F, Neath Port Talbot Hospital. They also offer a range of psychological and psychosocial interventions.
