Pelvic Health and Well-being Coordinator Role

  • Remuneration: 1 Programmed Activity
  • Term: 12 months initially, with potential for extension
  • Base: To be discussed on appointment
  • Reporting to: North Wales Clinical Lead for Women’s


Background to role:

The Women’s Health Implementation Group (WHIG) was set up to oversee specific areas of women’s health requiring urgent attention and improvement.

One of the key recommendations from the review into Vaginal Mesh and Tape stated:

“Recommendation 5: A care co-ordinator type role should be developed within the Pelvic Health and Wellbeing Pathway for women with mesh associated pain as a first point of contact in preference to a helpline.”



The consultant lead role will attract 1 Programmed Activity.

This will either be paid directly to the successful applicant or used for clinical backfilling if this enables the successful applicant to perform the role.


Roles and Responsibilities:

Initially the Pelvic Health and Well-being Coordinator will work with a Senior Programme Manager within the NHS Collaborative to develop and deliver policies, service redesign and improvements in relation to pelvic health and well-being required as outputs from the WHIG.

Support the Senior Programme Manager to implement a Pelvic Health and Wellbeing Care Pathway in the health board which aims to flow from community based services with, where necessary, full access to a multi-disciplinary team of clinicians incorporating continence care, physiotherapy, pain management and when appropriate psychology services for men and women.

Support the Senior Programme Manager to provide expert advice to the Women’s Health Implementation Group ensuring that key stakeholders within the Health Board are engaged in the design and delivery of the pathway.

Undertake an assessment within the health board of any additional resources that will be required to fulfil the requirements of the pathway.

Provide leadership and strategic direction to ensure the health board meets the full requirements of the Pelvic Health and Wellbeing Care Pathway.

Sign-post patients and facilitate ongoing care in the health board, which includes first point of contact for men and women with pelvic health issues associated with vaginal mesh and tape, endometriosis and faecal incontinence.

Work with other appointed coordinators across Wales to form a Network for sharing best practice and identify opportunities for continual service improvement within Women’s Pelvic Health.

Assist with the development of clear pathways for those conditions appropriate to be managed within primary care through joint working across primary care and secondary care to ensure pathways are current and maximise the benefits of the whole health system operating in a locality.

Involvement in the delivery of a joint training programme bringing together primary and secondary care clinicians. The aim will be to drive a culture change of joint working across primary and secondary care, to further build the team around the patient.

Collaborative working with service users – for example, the North Wales Gynaecology Voices group.

Work within the context of the Health Board’s Governance arrangements.
