Primary care independent contractors play an essential role in the care of our population and the health board commissions services from GPs, opticians, pharmacists and dentists across the area.

We have 49 GP practices in our health board area, 72 dental practices including orthodontists, 31 optometry practices and 92 community pharmacies. Mental health and learning disabilities services are provided both in hospital and community settings.

The Welsh Centre for Burns and Plastic Surgery at Morriston Hospital forms part of the UK network of burns and plastic surgery units, covering Wales, and the south west of England. Morriston is one of two specialist cardiac surgery services in Wales.

Other specialist services provided by the health board included cleft lip and palate, renal, fertility and bariatric surgery. Forensic mental health services are provided to a wider community which extends across the whole of South Wales.

The health board has an excellent reputation for research and innovation, with excellent links with Swansea University.
