If you're an ambitious professional in search of the work-life balance that others can only dream about, prepare for a very pleasant surprise.

This is a unique opportunity to work in Powys Teaching Health Board – a unique NHS organisation. That claim isn’t based purely on the outstanding working environment enjoyed by all our employees. It’s a fact founded on our status as Wales’ pathfinder primary care organisation.
Working in partnership, we commission and provide award-winning hospital, community, mental health and learning disability services, ensuring the wellbeing of the people of Powys. We are proud to offer patients an unrivalled level of care, not to mention a wide range of careers for professionals who enjoy making a real difference.
Powys Teaching Health Board (PTHB) is a highly successful organisation with a budget in excess of £281 million to deliver healthcare services to the people of Powys. We are a rural Health Board with 133,000 people living across an area that is a quarter of Wales. With no District General Hospital we provide as many services as possible locally through GP provision, Community Services and Community Hospitals and Clinics. Our vision is to deliver ‘truly integrated care centred on the needs of the individual’
Machynlleth Community Hospital is a small Community Hospital located in the centre of Machynlleth, with 14 beds providing a wide-range of services and is a key link between primary care in the community and acute care within the District General Hospitals. We specialise in the care of older people, with sub-acute needs and rehabilitation. End of life care is also provided and there is a Day Hospital and Outpatient facility on-site.
Our overall purpose is the delivery of safe, effective and dignified care, with nurses and midwives recognising their personal responsibility and accountability for the delivery of evidenced based care through competence in decision making and the effective management of risk, to ensure the best outcomes for patients and clients.
Our Nursing & Midwifery Strategy (2015-’18) has 6 key themes:
Caring with humanity, dignity, kindness and compassion;
Providing safe, effective, harm-free care;
Listening to patients and carers and improving the way we work, securing a reputation for excellence;
Developing confident, ambitious, inspirational leaders;
Working with partners for the benefit of patients and the population;
A questioning, analytical, empowered Nursing and Midwifery workforce.
If our purpose and themes resonate with you as a professional, then we want to hear from you.
The ability to speak Welsh is desirable for this post.
