Cwm Taf Cares - Our philosophy Cwm Taf Cares is at the heart of everything we do as we are committed to the health, wellbeing and development of our staff.

We provide healthcare services to people living in Bridgend, Merthyr Tydfil and Rhondda Cynon Taf county borough areas, serving a population of around 450,000. We are ideally situated between Wales’s capital city, Porthcawl to the west, and the stunning scenery in the Beacon Beacons to the north.

Our vision is to care for our communities and patients by preventing ill-health, promoting better health, providing excellent services and reducing the need for inpatient care wherever possible through the provision of strengthened home, primary and community care.

We value the diversity of our staff and welcome applications from people from protected groups under the Equality Act 2010, this specifically includes age, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity/reassignment, race, religion, disability, pregnancy and maternity and marriage and civil partnership.

Please check your email account regularly. Successful applicants will receive all recruitment related correspondence via the email account registered on the application form.

All applicants are invited to apply in Welsh or English, and no preference will be given to applications submitted in either language.

With proposed changes to services within Cwm Taf, the Health Board is looking to recruit potentially more than one consultant dependent on the final model of the service change. The successful candidate will be expected to be able to work at both the Royal Glamorgan and Prince Charles Hospitals as well as peripheral clinics at Ysbyty Cwm Rhondda and Ysbyty Cwm Cynon. We are looking for a consultant that can provide leadership on the Delivery suite, lead on guideline development and review, participate in skills and drills and reduce unnecessary intervention.


Prospective cover is included for colleague’s normal annual leave.


The specific job plan will be subject to change and approval from the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists but will typically include regular antenatal clinics, delivery suite session, gynaecology clinics and theatres.


Participation in a 1 in 6 on call rota inclusive of prospective cover and covering a Friday pm on a 1 in 6 rota. As outlined earlier this rota will change in line with the changes in service provision for increased obstetric number delivering at Prince Charles Hospital.


The post holder will be responsible for the day-to-day management of patients and will be supported by office facilities and secretarial support.
