CAV 24/7 is in place for the Minor Injuries Service at Barry Hospital so you will need to phone first to access this service.

From August 5th 2020, Instead of going straight to the Minor Injury Unit (MIU), people are being asked to phone the CAV 24/7 dedicated telephone number on 0300 10 20 247. This number is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Calls are taken by a call handler who will take the details; if it is a life-threatening emergency, then the call handler will escalate the call to 999. If it is not an emergency, the call handler will log the call in the system so a clinician will call you back. The clinician will attempt to ring you back within 20 minutes if it’s classed as urgent, or within an hour if it’s not. You will then be referred to the most appropriate service, or provided with suitable self-care advice; the right place, the first time. If further assessment at the Minor Injury Unit is considered appropriate, an appointment will be made for you to attend at a particular time.  The MIU is not a walk in service.  For further Information about CAV 24/7, click on the following link:

The MIU can treat 1 year olds and above.
