Clinical Fellow in Obstetrics & Gynaecology

Based at Glan Clwyd Hospital, Bodelwyddan

A Clinical Fellow in Obstetrics and Gynaecology (O&G) is required for Glan Clwyd Hospital, central North Wales, part of Betsi Cadwaladr Health Board. This is a very exciting time for maternity services at Glan Clwyd Hospital, with the recent completion of a major £100,000,000 + hospital redevelopment which included the opening of the North Wales Sub Regional Neonatal Intensive Care Centre. In parallel with this development of the on-site neonatal services, the obstetric service at Glan Clwyd is also developing a hub to provide a network of maternity services across North Wales, delivering specialised maternity care for premature births and complex pregnancies requiring special neonatal care.

This post will provide the successful candidate with the opportunity to experience all aspects of obstetrics & gynaecology to provide a solid foundation of experience within the specialty, or enhance their previously gained proficiency. It would also provide an ideal introduction to UK practice for those with experience from abroad who are interested in working in the UK. The department is actively involved in research and teaching, being consistently ranked excellent for undergraduate student placements from Cardiff Medical School. There is a rolling PROMPT training programme and support for those undertaking the MRCOG examinations. The Clinical Fellows and SAS doctors have their own dedicated facilities.

Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board (BCUHB) is the largest Health Board in Wales which provides integrated primary & secondary care health services to the population of North Wales. Acute services are provided by the three District General Hospitals – Glan Clwyd centrally, Wrexham Maelor in the east, and Ysbyty Gwynedd in the west.

The Womens’ services division provides a full range of maternity and gynaecology services, and as part of the medical team at Glan Clwyd Hospital you will make an important contribution to the provision of treatment & care to the women of North Wales.

This is a fixed term for 12 months full time post to fill a current vacancy and maintain the service provided by the existing Clinical Fellows.

BCUHB is committed to improving the working lives of our employees. We actively promote equal opportunities, flexible working and staff support. Applications from those wishing to work less than full time will be encouraged.
