Do you want to be a part of our Occupational Health & Well-being service?

We are looking for a dynamic forward thinking physician to join our team with a range of services and posts in place to support the Health Board
and its service needs.

  • There are good working relationships with the other Occupational Health Consultants within Health Boards in Wales and peer meetings to support each other
    professionally. There are a number of all Wales meetings / forums to support the strategy delivery throughout Wales.
  • The service contributes to continuous improvement through the Health Board’s Living Healthier Staying Well and the Workforce and Organisational Development Strategy.
  • The service has played a leading part in the attainment of the Welsh Corporate Health Standard – platinum level award having previously attained gold on a number of occasions.
  • The service are currently working towards Safe Effective, Quality Occupational Health Service (SEQOHS) accreditation.
  • Supporting the education, development and growth is an ongoing part of our team philosophy

There are three main hospitals (Ysbyty Gwynedd in Bangor, Glan Clwyd Hospital in Bodelwyddan and Wrexham Maelor Hospital) along with a network of community hospitals, health centres, clinics, mental health
units and community team bases. The Health Board also coordinates the work of 109 GP practices and NHS services provided by dentists, opticians and pharmacists in North Wales.

Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board is the largest health organisation in Wales, providing a fully integrated range of primary, community, mental health, acute and elective hospital services across North Wales.

Situated in the northern most aspect of Wales, the Health Board lies at the edge of the beautiful Snowdonia National Park and spans a huge and diverse geographical area. North Wales also boasts some of the UK’s most varied and spectacular coastline, offering unparalleled opportunities to engage with outdoor activities in an area of outstanding natural beauty.

The post is based at Wrexham Maelor Hospital but will have responsibilities for Health Board employees across North Wales which does involve daily/weekly travel to other hospital sites.

The population density is located along the northern costal boarder, with the main A55 road offering excellent links to the North West of England, and Ireland via seaport. This, in conjunction with the availability of
attractive housing and schooling options should be appreciated when considering a post in this area.

If you wish to continue to live in England and travel to North Wales, then our hospitals are in a commutable distance from Chester and Liverpool and parking is free within our hospital sites. We can provide financial support to help you relocate to North Wales along with flexible working options to enable you to achieve a great work-life balance.
