Welcome to Swansea Bay University Health Board. We welcome applications from people who share our values: caring for each other, working together and always improving.

Swansea Bay University Health Board reserve the right to close vacancies after 24 hours if a large number of suitable applications are received. We encourage early applications to ensure consideration for a post.

Equality remains at the centre of the Health Boards policy-making, service delivery and employment practices. 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.

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

We are offering an exciting opportunity for a committed and enthusiastic Clinical Scientist to join our friendly Laboratory Medicine team providing a comprehensive service to Abertawe Bro Morgannwg University Health Board. This post is based at Morriston Hospital, Swansea (core laboratory), although the postholder will also be expected to work at other sites, including Singleton Hospital, Swansea, and Princess of Wales Hospital, Bridgend. Service provision for the latter is subject to current discussions relating to a Health Board boundary change.


The completely integrated UKAS ISO 15189-accredited Laboratory Medicine Department has been formed by the merger of the Clinical Biochemistry and Haematology Departments across all sites, and the service includes fully automated laboratories and several specialist sections. This means the department is ideally placed to offer a wide range of training and career development opportunities.


This is a full-time Band 7 post, and as such you should be HCPC registered, possess an MSc, and have completed a recognised training programme. Appropriate support and training will be provided for the FRCPath examinations, for which the department has an excellent track record. You will become a key member of the Laboratory Medicine Team.


Swansea is situated in a beautiful part of the country, with excellent transport links. Morriston Hospital is just minutes away from the M4. Visits to the department and discussion about this opportunity are encouraged.


The ability to speak Welsh is desirable for this post; English and/or Welsh speakers are equally welcome to apply.
