Face masks: Due to the sharp rise in Covid-19 infections in our communities and on our wards, we require that all staff, patients and visitors wear face masks in all clinical and public areas, in all health and care settings, unless exempt.
The Welsh Government has requested that all health boards review cases in which patients contracted COVID-19 in healthcare settings.
Swansea Bay University Health Board is, therefore, undertaking a review into the cases of all people who tested positive for COVID-19 whilst in our care.
The purpose of our reviews is to ensure that the public and families have an opportunity to understand the circumstances surrounding the manner in which they, or a family member, acquired COVID-19 in hospital.
The reviews will also be important in highlighting information which can be taken forward as we learn more about this virus.
A Nosocomial Review Team has been set up to conduct these reviews and they will be in touch with all those affected in due course. There is no requirement to get in touch with the health board to instigate a review.
You can also get in touch with the Nosocomial Review Team (NRT) as follows:
Telephone: 01639 684440
When contacting the team, either by telephone or by email, please state that you are getting in touch regarding the COVID-19 review and include your name and contact details in order that they can get back to you.
