This is a replacement post and you will join colleagues in a very dynamic and forward looking Rheumatology Service.
Office accommodation, secretarial support and full IT facilities including access to intranet and internet will be provided.
Hwyel Dda University Health Board is one of seven acute Health Boards in Wales.
This post comes during a period of Health Board-wide service reviews, including a comprehensive reconfiguration of services for rheumatology in West Wales. The aim is to provide a spectrum of flexible and responsive services for rheumatology across the Health Board, encompassing:
- Development of a comprehensive Rheumatology Service across the Health Board with two main bases at Withybush General Hospital and Prince Philip Hospital.
- Acute inpatient assessment and treatment.
- Effective leadership to multidisciplinary staff members of the unit.
- Development of teaching, training and research within the Organisation.
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 has occurred with Year 4 medical students from Cardiff University attached to rheumatology 3 times a year as part of their chronic diseases module.
We have a highly successful peer mentoring programme, in which you are encouraged to take an active part.
Any applicant who is unable, for personal reasons, to work full-time will be considered for the post. If such a person is appointed, modification of the job content will be discussed on a personal basis in consultation with Consultant colleagues.
