2 Specialist Palliative Medicine Consultant Posts

Swansea Bay Palliative Care Team are pleased and excited to advertise these 2 new consultant posts:

  • Community Palliative Medicine
  • Front Door Palliative Medicine

These posts are part of the expansion of the established and well respected department of Specialist Palliative Care to better meet the palliative and end of life care needs of patients and their families. The expansion also includes 7 W.T.E. CNS', 2 W.T.E. Paramedics and admin team (all recruited to). It forms part of the Health Board's Clinical Redesign Programme (CRP) which will transform the way the health board functions. The CRP includes use of virtual wards in community and primary care and redesigning the function of each of the three major hospitals.

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.

We place great emphasis on continuous professional development and will actively support you in the development and achievement of personal goals.

As Phoebe Taplin outlined in her Guardian article of 4th August 2021:

"There are many reasons to base yourself in Swansea and imagine [you're] somewhere Mediterranean."

Swansea has low living costs and plenty of reasons to keep your work and life goals in balance partly due to it proximity to outstanding natural beauty such as the Gower Peninsula and the Brecon Beacons National Park- while London is still only 3 hours away by train and airports and ferry ports are easily accessible.

Please note interested applicants who do not yet have a CCT date eligible for anticipated interview in December '21 should please contact the department for further discussion.
