Andrew Burns, Hospital Director at Withybush Hospital said: “A traffic incident occurred at lunchtime today on the grounds of Withybush Hospital and Dyfed Powys Police are in attendance.  

“Appropriate medical care is being given to those who were injured in the incident and we kindly ask people not to contact the hospital for more information at this time.  

“Services continue to operate as normal at Withybush Hospital today (Wednesday 21 June). If you are attending for an outpatient appointment, you may experience some delay in parking while investigations are underway but this is expected to return to normal in due course. 

Please ensure you access the healthcare service most appropriate to your need as we are experiencing some additional pressure on our urgent and emergency care services at this time.

Please, only attend A&E if you have a life-threatening illness or serious injury. To ensure that we can treat patients appropriately, we urge you to choose your healthcare services very carefully, so that we are only seeing people with urgent or emergency care needs in A&E.  You can find out more about alternative services here
