Job Description


Rydym yn disgwyl fod pawb sy’n gweithio ar gyfer y Bwrdd Iechyd, beth bynnag yw eu rôl, yn rhannu ac yn ategu ein gwerthoedd ym mhopeth maent yn ei wneud:

Gofalu am ein gilydd – ym mhob cyswllt dynol ym mhob un o’n cymunedau ac ym mhob un o’n ysbytai.

Gweithio gyda’n gilydd - fel cleifion, teuluoedd, gofalwyr, staff a chymunedau fel ein bod yn rhoi cleifion yn gyntaf bob amser

Gwella bob amser – fel ein bod ar ein gorau i bob claf ac ein gilydd.

Mae cydraddoldeb yn parhau i fod yn ganolog i lunio polisïau, cyflenwi gwasanaethau ac ymarferion cyflogi’r Bwrdd Iechyd, ac rydym wedi ymrwymo i sicrhau nag oes unrhyw ymgeisydd swydd neu weithiwr yn derbyn triniaeth llai ffafriol ar sail eu hil, lliw, tarddiad ethnig, crefydd neu gred, rhyw, tueddfryd rhywiol, anabledd, statws priodasol neu oedran


We expect everyone that works for the Health Board, regardless of their role, to share and uphold our values in all that they do:

Caring for each other - in every human contact in all of our communities and each of our hospitals.

Working together - as patients, families, carers, staff and communities so that we always put patients first

Always improving - so that we are at our best for every patient and for each other.

Equality remains at the centre of the Health Boards (HB) policy-making, service delivery and employment practices, and we are committed to ensuring that no job applicant or employee receives less favourable treatment on the grounds of race, colour, ethnic origin, religion or belief, gender, sexual orientation, disability, marital status or age.

Abertawe Bro Morgannwg University Health Board (UHB) reserve the right to close this vacancy after 24 hours if a large number of suitable applications are received. Therefore we encourage early applications to ensure consideration for this post.

Prior consideration for this vacancy will be given to ABMU Health Board staff currently awaiting redeployment and we therefore reserve the right to withdraw this advert at any stage.

We are looking to recruit Band 5 Staff Nurses experienced in critical care or acute care settings for Cardiac intensive care( ITU) and high dependency (HDU) in Morriston Hospital, on the edge of the Gower coast, South Wales.

A post- operative cardio-thoracic surgical unit within the cardiac centre, we are an accredited practice development unit in affiliation with Leeds University and were the first unit in Wales to achieve this accolade.

Following a £66 million investment from the Welsh government the unit now boasts 10 level 3 beds and 8 level 2 beds. This is an exciting time to join the team in cardiac ITU/HDU, a comprehensive induction/competency package will be offered to successful candidates and a protected supernummary time of 4-6 weeks working alongside experienced mentors.

This dedicated time enables valuable skills to be learnt, build on previous knowledge and embed as part of a team that delivers high standards at the core of patient centred care. The management team has a transformational leadership style, whereby nurses are valued, nurtured to develop and grow.

The ability to speak Welsh is desirable for this role.
