My A&E Live - NHS Wales Accident and Emergency Departments

If your condition needs to be seen in either an A&E department or Minor Injury Unit, the information below will indicate the nearest hospitals to your location. For the majority of Welsh hospitals it will indicate the typical time you are likely to spend in the Department/Unit. Some basic information for English hospitals is included for patients who live in border areas. For patients in the Cardiff and Vale area, the health board are now operating a Phone First system and therefore typical wait times are not available. For patients in Powys, the health board are now operating a Phone First system. Choosing the right place is important to get the most appropriate treatment in a timely manner. If you do not know which option to choose, check your symptoms on the NHS 111 Wales online Symptom Checker.
