The Welsh Centre for Cleft Lip and Palate

COVID-19 VISITING UPDATE: Please note our rules regarding hospital visits have changed. For the latest guidance on our visiting regulations, please visit this page

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 hold clinics at University Hospital of Wales, Cardiff.

There are many different professionals who work in our team. More information about these professionals can be found below. We work with many community NHS colleagues throughout the region and are part of the South Wales South West Managed Clinical Network.

The majority of cleft related surgery and outpatient clinics are suspended although limited outpatient appointments and some baby surgery is resuming slowly. Please also see the page "COVID- our services" for more specific information and advice together with the UK Cleft Development Group's (CDG) statement.

We are answering our phones so if you have a cleft-related problem and wish to speak with a member of the team then please don't hesitate to contact us on 01792 703810
