New Emergency Department system goes live

16 December 2021

Neath Port Talbot Minor Injuries Unit is the first in Wales to use a new national Emergency Department (A&E) system. The digital system will replace paper records and provide an electronic tracking grid to give healthcare professionals real-time information on a patient’s treatment.

The Minor Injuries Unit previously used paper-based casualty cards to record patients care, but the new system creates digital records which can be shared safely and quickly with other departments and healthcare professionals.

Following the successful launch of the system in Neath Port Talbot, it will be installed in Morriston Hospital in Swansea early in 2022, and rolled out to other parts of Wales during next year.
