Welcome to The Welsh Centre for Cleft Lip & Palate. We provide a service to those born with a cleft lip and/or palate who live in South, West and parts of Mid Wales. We see babies, children, adolescents, adults and their families. We also provide a service to those with a submucous cleft palate and non-cleft velopharyngeal dysfunction. 

The service is based at Morriston Hospital, Swansea and we also hold clinics at the University Hospital of Wales, Cardiff. More information about where to find us can be found by following this link to the “Find us - Our Wards and Departments” page. 

There are many different professionals who work within our team.  More information about these professionals can be found by following this link to the “Meet the Team” page. We work with many community NHS colleagues throughout the region and are part of the South Wales South West Managed Clinical Network.
