Hywel Dda Health Board is one of seven acute Health Boards in Wales, and covers a quarter of the land mass of Wales.
This post comes during a period of Health Board-wide service reviews, including a comprehensive reconfiguration of services for Mental Health in West Wales. The potential for Health Board-wide developments and a closer liaison with primary care and social services is substantial and exciting. A major expansion in undergraduate medical student teaching is planned.
Hywel Dda University Health Board provides services to the 3 counties of Ceredigion, Pembrokeshire and Carmarthenshire which together cover a quarter of Wales. It is predominantly rural in nature with areas of outstanding beauty attracting National Park status. Llanelli on the south coast is the only major industrial town in the area. Aberystwyth, Lampeter and Carmarthen are University towns. Cardiff, the capital of Wales is approximately 125 miles away while Swansea is about 65 mile away from Aberystwyth.
