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.

At Morriston Hospital we have both cardiology services and cardiothoracic surgery.
If you are referred to cardiology you will be assessed and treated medically. You may have a procedure such as cardiac catheterisation or a coronary angioplasty, which widens blocked or narrowed coronary arteries.
Please see the cardiology section below for more information.
Our cardiothoracic surgery department performs surgery on the heart, lungs and chest including bypass and open heart surgery. This can be planned in advance or done in an emergency.
Please see the cardiothoracic surgery section for more information.
