A woman aged 40 was also injured but made her own way to hospital where she was treated and discharged.
A 40-year-old man was arrested in St Stephen’s Health Centre on suspicion of causing grievous bodily harm.
He was taken to hospital and treated for a minor injury and has since been discharged and is in police custody.
Farhad Alom, 25, who witnessed the attacks, said, a bystander at St Stephen’s could not get to safety as he was in a wheelchair.
One woman, who did not want to be named, said she saw the knife attack at Tredegar Practice and a man stepped in to stop the attacker.
