999 admissions to stop at a south Wales hospital

21st August 2012

A hospital in South Wales has confirmed an "urgent change" in the way it handles emergencies from 999 calls.

Neath Port Talbot Hospital has said it will not take admissions after midnight on Tuesday because of a shortage of doctors. Patients will be sent to hospitals in Bridgend and Swansea instead. Abertawe Bro Morgannwg University Health Board chief executive Paul Roberts said: "It is important to remember that this urgent change is being made for safety reasons and on the advice of senior doctors."
