Abertawe Bro Morgannwg University Health Board (ABMU)

Abertawe Bro Morgannwg Health Board provides primary and secondary health care services mainly for the 600,000 residents of Bridgend, Neath Port Talbot and Swansea. The Health Board has four acute hospitals providing a range of services; these are Singleton and Morriston Hospitals in Swansea, Neath Port Talbot Hospital in Port Talbot and the Princess of Wales Hospital in Bridgend, and is responsible for providing a number of specialist regional services including cardiac, burns and plastic surgery and neonatal.

Forensic Mental Health services are provided for the whole of South Wales, while Learning Disability services are provided from Swansea to Cardiff. A range of community based services are also delivered in patients’ homes, via community hospitals, health centres and clinics.

The Health Board contracts with independent practitioners in respect of primary care services which are delivered by GPs, Opticians, Pharmacists and Dentists.

There are more than 300 General Practitioners, around 275 dentists, 125 Community Pharmacies and 60 Optometry premises across the Health Board.

The Health Board is a University Health Board and has excellent links with Swansea University with whom it has a number of exciting joint projects currently underway. As a result of these excellent links, we have secured, in partnership, the Wales Graduate Entry Medical degree award. In addition, the development of the Institute of Life Science (ILS) and ILS 2 at the School of Medicine at Swansea University has created a safe and effective environment for an outstanding Clinical Research Facility.

This provides rich potential for medical and health advance and also for the strong promotion of the local knowledge economy.  Further, impressive progress at the Swansea University College of Human and Health Sciences responsible for nursing, midwifery, and allied healthcare professional education across the Region has been made. This collaborative approach has led to the development of an ambitious programme for multi-disciplinary clinical skills teaching at the postgraduate level to support the development of new and innovative ways of working.
