What to do if you fall ill during your stay in Swansea Bay, Mumbles and Gower
Our Local Health Board can help
We hope you keep well and enjoy your visit. But if you fall ill or hurt yourself while you're away from home, this leaflet offers you advice about what to do:
This leaflet includes advice for common conditions, and instructions on how to find your nearest hospital.
Please note: If you have chest pains, difficulty breathing, lose consciousness, have a fit, suffer major blood loss, choke, get a severe allergic reaction, or any other life-threatening condition or major injury, always ring 999.
If your condition is not so serious, first decide if it can wait until you can see your own GP, or if a local pharmacist can help. If not, then ring the confidential NHS Direct Wales helpline on 0845 46 47 for 24-hour advice.
After hours, (between 6.30pm and 8am), and at weekends, you can also use the Swansea GP Out of Hours Service: 0845 8501 362.
