The Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board welcomes applicants for two permanent full time posts of Consultant within Acute Medicine at the Ysbyty Gwynedd, Bangor to join our famously friendly team in Acute Medicine: A vacancy has arisen for the post of Consultant Acute Physician based at Ysbyty Gwynedd, Bangor following the retirement of a colleague and a new additional post has been approved. 

The predominant role of the posts will be to expand the local Acute Medical service. The post-holders will be an integral part of the multi-professional Acute Medicine team at the Ysbyty Gwynedd together with 3 other Consultant Acute Physician colleagues.
We are encouraging a specialist interest of the candidates choice as part of the job plan.

We are proud of our achievements in education and research:
• The Ysbyty Gwynedd achieves some of the best ratings in Wales from its medical students for its Acute Care teaching and our pass rate for MRCP PACES has been excellent. Supervision of our MRCP fellows and maintenance of our outstanding pass rate for the MRCP is a key strategic target for the unit. 

• The Acute Medical Unit at the Ysbyty Gwynedd is among the most research active Acute Medical Units in the UK and is collaborating with national and international partners from Ireland, Denmark, the Netherlands, Germany and the US. Additionally we are working with the global leader in health technology in developing and testing innovative solutions for general wards.

• Links with Bangor University are well established and a Senior Clinical Lecturer in Acute Medicine is part of the department.

• In 2014 the Ysbyty Gwynedd was chosen as one of only four demonstrator sites in the first wave of units for the Royal College of Physicians’ Future Hospital Program with an innovative service for video follow-up in rural areas.

The new consultants will be encouraged to develop their own innovations. Joint appointments with Bangor University and/or a degree in Medical Education would be supported for suitable candidates.

This is an exciting time for us here at Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board. We are the largest health organisation in Wales and, as a fully integrated organisation, provide a full range of primary, community, mental health, acute and elective hospital services for a population of almost 700,000 people across six counties of North Wales (Anglesey, Gwynedd, Conwy, Denbighshire, Flintshire and Wrexham), as well as some services to parts of mid Wales. We serve a bi-lingual population and are committed to improving their health and well-being through everything we do.

The Health Board employs around 16,000 staff and has a budget of around £1.1 billion and is responsible for the operation of three district general hospitals (Ysbyty Gwynedd in Bangor, Ysbyty Glan Clwyd near Rhyl, and Ysbyty Maelor in Wrexham) as well as 22 other acute and community hospitals, and a network of over 90 health centres, clinics, community health team bases and mental health units. It also coordinates the work of 121 GP practices and NHS services provided by North Wales dentists, opticians and pharmacies.

We are undergoing a significant phase of transformation, review and renewal that will position us to achieve our future ambitions as the leading integrated care organisation in Wales. Central to this journey will be the contribution of our workforce who with strong team working skills, will be able to demonstrate the values that are important to us, communicating well with both colleagues and patients, who have the vision and ability to help move our services forward whilst getting the best of each other, treating others with respect and dignity and never compromising on quality.
