When We Are Closed
If you need to contact a doctor when the surgery is closed, you should contact the ‘Out-of-Hours’ service directly on 111.
Out-of-hours applies from 6.30pm to 8.00am Monday to Friday, all day on Saturdays, Sundays and bank holidays.
Swansea Local Health Board is now responsible for the out-of-hours service. You can also contact the 111 Service (Previously NHS Direct) for Health Information and Advice 24/7. Visit NHS Direct online at www.nhsdirect.nhs.uk.
Swansea Minor Injuries Unit
Minor Injury Unit, Singleton Hospital, Sketty Lane, Swansea, SA2 8QA.
The Minor Injury Unit at Singleton Hospital is open between 8am and 8pm daily. It treats unexpected and urgent minor injuries or illness when you just can’t wait to see your GP.
When the unit is closed please use the Minor Injury Unit at Neath Port Talbot Hospital, Baglan Way. Port Talbot. SA12 7BX.
Alternatively you can contact NHS Wales Direct Wales on 111 for advice.
Singleton Minor Injury Unit can deal with conditions like:
- Grazes, wounds and minor burns
- Non-penetrating eye and ear injuries
- Head or face injuries (without loss of consciousness)
- Minor neck injuries (where patient is mobile and has no pins or needles in arms)
- Animal and human bites (not insect).
Emergency Departments (A&E) are for seriously ill or injured patients. These patients are given priority which means patients who have minor illness or injury wait longer. Choose the right healthcare service with www.abm.wales.nhs.uk or www.choosewellwales.org.uk
In a genuine emergency you should call 999. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.
