An exciting opportunity to join a well-established motivated and enthusiastic team of seven consultants (including this post) covering a period of maternity leave (six months in the first instance), supporting multi disciplinary team responsible for the provision of Specialist Palliative Medicine services across ABMU Health Board.
Specialist Inpatient and Community and Hospital Support Services are run out of Y Bwthyn Newydd within Princess of Wales Hospital in Bridgend and Tŷ Olwen within Morriston Hospital, Swansea. Teams are also based in Y Rhosyn within Neath Port Talbot Hospital providing support to community and hospital services and within Singleton Hospital, Swansea, providing support to the Cancer Centre and hospital.

The department is committed to supporting the advancement of palliative care. We work closely with both Cardiff and Swansea Universities, along with other university and college partners in South Wales. There are excellent education centres at the major hospitals with a full programme of activities.
Located in South Wales, the area offers a mixture of dramatic coastlines, areas of outstanding natural beauty, commerce and industry activity. The area is well served by an hourly rail-link to London, the M4 motorway.
