Did you know that the majority of people (77%) in Swansea, Neath Port Talbot and Bridgend are non-smokers?

Our hospitals are smoke-free environments
Most smokers respect other patients and visitors and don't smoke outside our hospital entrances or in our grounds. If you smoke, please be just as considerate and don't light up. All our hospitals are smoke-free, which means smoking isn't allowed in buildings and grounds, including car parks and entrances. Thanks for your co-operation and respect for others!
Singleton is a modern District General Hospital with 550 beds situated on Swansea Bay, adjacent to the campus of Swansea University. There are Acute General Medical, Care of the Elderly, General Surgical, Ophthalmology, ENT and Radiotherapy Departments in addition to High Dependency Unit and the Obstetric and Gynaecological Departments. A number of these departments provide sub-regional services as well as secondary care services (e.g. Ophthalmology, ENT, Dermatology). These services are supported by a General 9-bed ITU and HDU facility and a range of high quality therapeutic and diagnostic services.
There is a Maternity Unit and a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (recognised as a sub-regional Centre). Genetic counselling clinics are held weekly and there is a major Genito-Urinary medicine Unit that provides a service for South West Wales as does the Department of Medical Physics and Radiotherapy. Bone Marrow Transplants are carried out by the Haematology service.
Singleton has its own 24-hour Minor Injury Unit and Medical Assessment Unit.
The Hospital also houses the sub-regional Cancer Centre and as such provides specialist Oncology services to South West Wales, as well as complex cancer cases within the other specialties onsite (e.g. Oral Maxillofacial, ENT, Colorectal, Upper GI). The South West Wales Cancer Institute and a separate Chemotherapy Day Unit are also at Singleton.
Increasingly Obstetrics services are also being provided for complex cases in South West Wales.
The Children's Wards and Paediatric Assessment Unit are no longer at Singleton Hospital. They have now been transferred to Morriston Hospital.
