An exciting opportunity has arisen for a Speciality Doctor to join a friendly, ambitious and expanding department which provides a Specialist Palliative Care Service.

We are looking for an enthusiastic individual to join our multi-professional team in providing specialist inpatient, community (including domiciliary, outpatient and day care) and hospital palliative care to support to patients with advanced, life shortening illnesses in South Wales. The post offers excellent opportunities to gain experience in all aspects of palliative medicine.

Swansea Bay University Health Board is ambitious to uphold the fundamental values of the NHS and we work in close partnership with Swansea University and Cardiff University as well as other local partners in South Wales. We are passionate about delivering excellence in clinical services and are committed to supporting the advancement of palliative care.

Inexpensive properties, good schools and proximity to areas of outstanding natural beauty such as the Gower Peninsula and the Brecon Beacons National Park add to the attraction of living in South West Wales – while London is still only 3 hours away by train.
