Locum Consultant Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon
An exciting opportunity has arisen to join the consultant team at the Welsh Centre of Burns and Plastic Surgery, based at Swansea Bay University Health Board.
We are looking to recruit a Locum Plastic & Reconstructive Surgeon, with a specialist interest in Microsurgical Breast Reconstruction Surgery to join the existing team of 3 permanent Consultants, and an Associate Specialist. The successful candidate may also be part of the Burns team, with participation in the Burns on call rota, although an alternative commitment to the general plastic surgery on call will also be considered for suitable candidates.
This post will be part of a team of 22 plastic and reconstructive surgeons serving a population of around 2.3 million. The Welsh Centre for Burns & Plastic Surgery has a wide remit and we are able to offer the entire spectrum of plastic surgery except for complex craniofacial services in Swansea.
Swansea is Wales' second largest coastal city offering a superb work-life balance and a rich cultural environment, which is ideal for family life. The city is the gateway to the Gower Peninsula, designated an 'Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty'. Walking, fishing, surfing, canoeing and sailing flourish in the area and Walkers/ ramblers are spoilt for choice. The magnificent "Worms Head" snaking out to sea is one of the finest views in the world; yet you have all the facilities of urban life at hand. Excellent state and independent schools are available. There is easy access to the M4 corridor.
Singleton is a University Teaching Hospital allied to the College of Medicine at the rapidly expanding Swansea University and is a designated training unit for higher specialist training in Wales. We are consistently rated highly in the GMC junior doctors' surveys. There are excellent teaching and collaborative research opportunities with Swansea and Cardiff Universities. The medical school is consistently ranked 3rd or 4th best in national student surveys.
