Emergency Department (ED)

Sign for Morriston Hospital

You should only call 999 or visit the ED in a real emergency

Only come to our emergency department (ED) at Morriston Hospital if it's for serious and life-threatening conditions that need immediate medical attention including breathing difficulties, persistent severe chest pain, heavy blood loss, severe burns, loss of consciousness, suspected stroke, deep wounds.

Not an emergency but need help fast?

The services below may be able to help you resolve your issue much quicker than the ED, which can be busy and subject to long waits.


Minor injuries

From Monday 13th April  patients with minor injuries will NO LONGER be seen at Morriston Hospital Emergency Department. ALL minor injuries will be treated at the Minor Injury Unit at Neath Port Talbot Hospital only.

If a patient with a minor injury presents at Morriston Hospital, they will not be seen and will be re-directed to the MIU at NPTH.

Patients who have minor medical conditions are asked to contact their GP or visit their local pharmacy.

Fracture clinic

In addition, the fracture clinic at Morriston Hospital is also planned to move on Monday to Neath Port Talbot Hospital. Patients with a fracture clinic appointment are being contacted directly to advise them of the change of venue.

This is to support the changes needed at Morriston Hospital to care for patients with COVID-19.

Thank you and please stay safe!

Children's Services

We are rearranging some of our children’s services in Morriston Hospital in response to COVID-19.

From Monday, 30th March, the hospital’s Paediatric Emergency Department will be co-located with the Paediatric Assessment Unit to form a dedicated Children’s Emergency Unit (CEU). This is to protect children and their families during the outbreak.

The entrance to CEU is located by driving past the main emergency department entrance and taking the next right turn. Signage will be visible.

The unit will accept patients aged 0-16.

We are currently only allowing one parent or carer, and the entrance is drop off only. Parking is usual hospital parking areas.

The pathway for GP referrals remains the same.
