Breast Test Wales

This post would suit a qualified Doctor either currently working as a Breast Clinician or wishing to train in breast assessment.

Breast Test Wales can offer an excellent work life balance, workplace support and good training opportunities for the successful applicant.

Breast Test Wales is the sole provider of the NHS breast screening programme in Wales. Women in Wales aged 50 to 70 and registered with a GP are invited for screening every three years. Older women are screened on request at intervals of no less than three years. Women are either screened in one of the static centres (Cardiff, Swansea, Llandudno and Wrexham) or on one of the 10 mobile screening units.

Assessment clinics are held at the static centres. Breast Test Wales does not provide symptomatic breast services. The model of screening provision in Wales is unique to the UK. Breast Test Wales is responsible for all aspects of the breast screening programme in Wales, up to the point of diagnosis of cancer.

The successful candidate will be given full support to gain the necessary skills (if required) to undertake mammography and ultrasound imaging and biopsy techniques as well as clinical breast examination, in order to deliver triple assessment within Breast Test Wales clinics.

The successful applicant will become a key member of the multidisciplinary team. An ability to speak Welsh is desirable for this post.

For an informal discussion please contact Dr Andy Gash (Clinical Lead) or Mr Dean Phillips (Head of Programme) on 02920 10 4419.
