Children's services - Hospital services for children

What hospital services are in place for children?

All of our hospitals have an Emergency and Urgent Care Unit. Both are open 24 hours a day. All three hospital sites have Paediatric Ambulatory Care Units especially for children. Inpatient overnight wards are available at Bronglais and Glangwili Hospitals.

Paediatric Ambulatory Care Unit (PACU)

What is PACU and when should I visit?
