Consultant in Obstetrics and Gynaecology with an Interest in Ambulatory Gynaecology/EPAU
A fantastic opportunity has arisen to join a motivated team as a consultant within Obstetrics and Gynaecology at Bronglais Hospital. The successful post holder will contribute to developing ambulatory gynaecology within the department with specific emphasis on out patient hysteroscopy and leading Early Pregnancy Assessment.
The Obstetric unit has recently undergone a major refurbishment with a new Antenatal and Labour Ward Area. The outpatients have also been refurbished and the main hospital theatres are currently being updated. The unit at Bronglais Hospital currently has 550 deliveries per year and accommodates 2000 women referred for gynaecology care. The unit at Bronglais forms part of wider obstetric unit and neonatal unit which is based at Glangwilli Hospital at Carmarthen.
Bronglais General Hospital is a 125 bed acute hospital that currently serves a core population of 125,000 in a geographically large and sparsely populated area. The summertime population approximately doubles due to the influx of holidaymakers and there are also a large number of university students based in Aberystwyth. Furthermore, approximately 70,000 permanent residents live in areas equidistant from Bronglais and other acute care sites, in areas to which enhanced outreach is planned as part of future development of services.
Aberystwyth is a unique place to live where the peace and quiet of rural living is balanced with a vibrant outdoor life style where the University town buzzes with excitement. The town offers a variety of places to enjoy, close by to breath-taking rugged scenery and stunning beaches to historical castle ruins, harbour and pier. There is so much on offer from surfing in the morning, lengthy picturesque walks in the mountains, to watching a dramatic sunset from the Iron Age fort taking in the striking views of nearby Cardigan Bay, as featured in the highly acclaimed BBC1 drama Hinterland.
