Swansea Bay University Health Board (formerly ABMU) was created on 1 April 2019, after responsibility for providing healthcare services in the Bridgend County Borough Council area passed from ABMU to the new Cwm Taf Morgannwg University Health Board.
Swansea Bay UHB covers a population of around 390,000 in the Neath Port Talbot and Swansea areas and we have a budget of around £1bn. The Health Board employs approximately 12,500 staff. It has three major hospitals providing a range of services: Morriston and Singleton in Swansea, and Neath Port Talbot Hospital in Baglan, Port Talbot.
We also have a community hospital and primary care resource centres providing clinical services outside the main hospitals. Mental health and learning disabilities services are provided both in hospital and community settings. Morriston also delivers one of two cardiac surgery services in Wales.
The Health Board is part of A Regional Collaboration for Health (ARCH), which is a partnership with Hywel Dda University Health Board and Swansea University. ARCH is a unique collaboration project aimed at improving the wellbeing and wealth of South West Wales.
