For those nurses without Vascular experience but with a keen interest and a desire to develop their skills, we will provide support and guidance to gain their Vascular competencies.

As an integral part of this development we have invested in a dedicated vascular ward and installed a state of the art Hybrid Theatre (including Interventional Radiology facilities).

The North Wales Vascular Network provides services to a population of approximately 700,000 residents. Spoke services are provided at Ysbyty Gwynedd, Bangor, and Wrexham Maelor Hospital.

In conjunction with our hard-working, highly motivated team of vascular surgeons, interventional radiologists, advanced nurse practitioner and clinical nurse specialist, the successful appointees will provide a high quality, modern service in a rapidly developing unit. The posts will be based at Glan Clwyd Hospital.
